Paint tries to give odor the brushoff

Here's a novel idea: an interior paint formulated to eliminate odor and resist mildew.

Dutch Boy's new Refresh paint is formulated with Arm & Hammer technology to eliminate odor from the air, and a volatile organic compound, or VOC, formulation to provide a mildew-resistant coating ideal for kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms and basements. The larger the surface area painted with Refresh, the better the odor- eliminating technology works, according to Dutch Boy.

Refresh paint is available nationwide at a variety of Dutch Boy retailers starting at $23 per gallon. For more information, visit or call (800) 828-5669.
