.. The Solution ..

It's easy to fall in the trap of thinking any paint that is labeled as non toxic is a good thing. There's a lot on the market claiming to be that - water-based they may be but they still use acrylics so in other words they are saying eating plastic won't harm you!

Given a choice I prefer to use all natural paint - products that don't include harmful or synthetic chemicals. More and more of these natural paints are appearing on the market and they don't necessarily cost more than non-natural quality paints.

But natural paints have other advantages. When they have a significal smell it's pleasant and not overpowering. Once it's on the wall it stays cleaner - no plastic so no static to attract dust.

And talking of dust, I now use a dust-free sanding system so there's less mess, less dust floating in the air and less cleaning up
