I have purchased all new doors which are the white already primed type, I am just in the process of undercoating them. I have had these in the past but was disappointed after using gloss paint, the finish was actually lovely but I found they soon lost their whiteness just as gloss does after a while. What would be the best to use for the finishing coat? Has anyone used satinwood on doors? I know this gives a nice finish on cuboards etc but I am thinking 'finger marks' and if I start wiping the doors down would I just eventually be wiping off the satinwood paint.

All tips appreciated as will be starting the final coat hopefully by next Wednesday after I have finished undercoating them all. As usual time limits the amout I can do in a day.

Thanks to you all. :LOL: :LOL:

Yes, I currently use it on everything & looks great. Had some complaints about yellowing after a few months up to about a year or so ago but the latest "new formula" stuff seems OK, although it does have a slightly higher sheen. No you won’t wipe it off unless you use kitchen scourers or one of those nice, hygienic anti- bacteria sprays. They should come with a health warning as I think they must contain neat paint stripper; continued use will ruin any lacquered or painted surface well inside 12 months!
