Urgent warning to DIYers: Dutch Boy Dura Clean is literally the worst paint I have ever used! Avoid it at all costs.
Just repainted my bathroom and living room with Dutch Boy Dura Clean paint from Menards, and I already have to repair spots. I carefully sanded and washed the walls before painting and it's pealing off with the slightest touch. You can literally scrap it off with a thumbnail.
I have scrape marks around the door handle just from the wife's nails bumping into the door opening and closing it. I have an expanding shower curtain rod and I moved it up a bit and the paint underneath the ends came off. We have a destructive dog so we put up a baby gate to keep her out of the living room while we are gone and the paint got scraped off by the rubber compression points.
The label says "Washable and scrubbable" implying it is durable, it isn't. I am livid at this point because it took me a long time to sand and patch all the perfections on my walls (it's an old house) and now I need to redo it. Worse yet I am worried any new paint won't properly adhere because of this worthless crap paint being underneath it. Fixing it is going to cost me 10X much because I have to have the walls skim coated with plaster just to ensure the new paint doesn't peel off because of this crap paint.
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY THIS PAINT!!!!
