No matter what we do, the bathroom ceiling always ends up peeling. We have a window that is opened and a fan that is turned on for each shower, and yet the problem persists. Is there a special paint we should be using? Is there any special kind of product (ie primer, etc) for bathrooms that we should use before painting? Should we not use the shower between coats to allow the paint to dry completely? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi Robin, I had the same problem a few years ago where there was one section (2'x2') of the bathroom ceiling that just wouldn't hold the paint, it just kept falling down. What is needed to fix this problem is a good primer prior to painting, what I used was Kilz others may recommend BIN, both of which are two of the leading primers. So just pick the primer of your choice, apply it and let it dry (keep the humidity down while it dries), then apply your paint. Also keep the humidity down while the paint dries, so that it has a good chance to adhere to the primed surface. Hope this helps, and good luck!
