Purchased in May 2019 at Bunnings.
Worried about smell/ paint is okay
I have painted ceilings in my house with never miss and the smell wont go away even after airing for days on end. I also want to paint walls with dulux that i have purchased but i am selling in september and worried if smell will hang around?
I repainted by bedroom using this paint in May last year and (after having someone else in this room until September) started noticing a horrible smell like cat urine. Have looked everywhere (hung out all clothing, rugs, soft furnishings etc) for the source of the odour and finally after looking up the paint have realised where it is coming from. The smell is absolutely awful and has been exacerbated by hot weather.
Is this dangerous? Dulux, you clearly need to recall this paint and compensate your customers
Please Help!! The smell does not go away!
I wish I had read reviews before making the decision to choose my paint. I chose Dulux Because I assumed it would be a quality product (simply because I knew the name). Lesson learnt: never buy a product before reading reviews! I have the same issue as everyone here: Got a professional to paint my home with Ceiling White and Wash N Wear. After several weeks of constant aeration (days and nights), a rancid smell of cat’s pee/ vinegar/ amonia/ is persisting. It gives me headaches and I cannot live in my house. Grateful if Dulux could explain what exactly is causing this smell so we can find out whether it is dangerous (i assume it is based on the reactions I have had). And so we can all find a solution? please help!!
The stench is overwhelming!
It gets worse with the hot weather. We painted the ceiling in the bathroom on the 10/12/18 and the smell is getting worse. At first i couldn’t pinpoint the smell as we had just replaced the entire ceiling with new plasterboard and were happy with the look of it but since painting the ceiling in my sons room yesterday l noticed the smell developed in there as well. Called Dulux and they won’t do anything without the receipt which I threw out in oct/nov when I purchased the product
Rotten smell for weeks
Just like others have reported this paint has a foul smell once it has dried. Luckily I only painted one room..
I had no problem applying the paint at all, it went easy and stayed pink long enough to see where I had painted. It smelt strong but like normal paint. It dried evenly and the ceiling had a nice finish.. But that was as good as it got with this product.
Within a few days a rotten gas like chemical odour started in the room. I had renovated the room, including new floors/plaster so I knew it wasn’t a dead animal or a gas leak. So I opened the room up all day and turned the ceiling fan on for a week but it made no difference. After 3 weeks the odour was unbearable and the room was unusable. I hooped online and googled all the paints I had used and found this site. Sure enough, same paint, same problems.. Never had this smell from a paint before, never had used this paint so it wasn’t hard to figure out..
I had new carpet arriving so I had to sort this out quick.. I followed the suggestion on here and used shellac precision stain and odour blocker, instantly the foul gas smell vanished. I then put on 2 coats of matt wash and wear paint, rather than another ceiling paint product, and the odour has not come back (5 days now).
There is no doubt there is something very wrong with this paint, whether it reacts a certain way or in certain circumstances who knows. What I do know is I wasted money buying it, I wasted my time using it and I wasted more money fixing it. All through the process dulux got my money and I got a lemon..
Cornice is still pink after 2 days!
I am a pro painter, I work for an insurance builder who supplies the paint through Bunnings.
I painted a ceiling and cornice.. The ceiling has dried no problem, but the ornate cornice is still pink, even after 2 days.. As the cornice is ornate it took forever to paint in the first place.. The client is concerned. I even painted some of it again with normal ceiling paint, but the pink still bleed through..
Should have listened to the reviews!
Thank goodness only did one bedroom ceiling. I walked into the room the following day and wondered if the cat had pooped in there. Nope. The room is totally empty ready for the new carpet and it stinks! Will repaint with trusty Haymes and hope that does the trick. I now have a useless almost full 10 litre can of Dulux paint :-(
The smell is revolting!!!
We prepared the wall as per Dulux instructions we used 1 Step as the base to the never miss the ceiling was cleaned and sanded. The 1 Step was fine it didn’t smell at all just typical new paint scent the first coat of never miss didn’t smell and we painted on a hot day, it was the second coat that became the problem it absolutely STINKS to the point of gagging. It’s an undescriable scent it’s absolutely putrid!!! I NEVER would have brought this had I know how bad it would smell.
Lingering unpleasant smell!!!
Lingering unpleasant smell!! Mid October, I repainted the ceiling of a bedroom with Deluxe Ceiling White NeverMiss paint. I found the paint very thick and difficult to apply as it seemed to dry very fast and the pinkness didn't last long enough. However, what was worse was the sickening smell of the paint and by the end of the process, I was dry retching. The ceiling looked good after just one coat so I didn't do a second coat. I don't think I could have faced it, honestly. Anyway, a month later, there is still a lingering sickly-sweet smell in the bedroom. It seems worse on warm days. I have tried airing the room and burning some essential oils but I cannot get rid of it. I had used a similar product from another brand several years ago without any problems. I have mostly purchased Dulux products over the years and have been very happy with them. I would definitely stay away from this product in the future.
Worst paint EVER
First time using Dulux paint and all I'm painting is white walls. I have had to paint 3 times over and it's still not great. I gave it another try after talking to the workers, and having them check the paint for me. Same outcome the second time. I do a lot of painting and never been more dissatisfied. Will never buy again.
Deluxe ceiling white
Having been a professional painter for 40 years l have hardly ever used deluxe paint but the last job l quoted the owners wanted deluxe ceiling paint to be used, i put the normal 2 coats on and after drying l was embarrassed to see the finish, this is without doubt the worst paint have ever used and l will never use deluxe again and will tell all my painting mates to never touch the crap, and the smell was like a dead possum smell revolting, the owners have been telling me to fix it but l told them that they chose it, l think there might be a class action in the not to distant future and count me in
Beautiful paint - so quick to use
I have read the reviews, and quite honestly can't believe it. I painted my hallway ceiling and a small bedroom with this paint after cutting in with a brush it took me 20 minutes with a roller to do both rooms! and I got great coverage!!! Yes it has an odour for a couple of days - big deal it is paint - open a window and enjoy your free time, well worth the money and ease of seeing where you have been. Just make sure you have enough paint on your roller, I used an extendable roller - seriously the easiest ceiling I have ever painted. I am no strong man either, I am a 48 year old woman with somewhat laxed fitness levels.
I have ALWAYS used Dulux and have always been more than happy with the result. However, I used their Nevermiss ceiling white and would definitely advise against this product. The paint was much harder to apply than their regular ceiling paint, it faded almost before the roller was recharged and the smell is unbearable. I wish I had seen this site before I bought (and used) it. It is now a week since I painted the ceiling and the smell remains strong, especially in the day when it is warmer. After reading the reviews I will be returning it to Bunnings and replacing it with the regular ceiling white. The Nevermiss is a disaster. I am in my 70's, have painted interiors all my married life, and I am really unimpressed about having to do it again.
used over 2 year old paint (white) was told at pos one coat would only be needed, first coat was easy to see where id painted but it needed a second coat strangely not so easy to see where ive painted !!, ceiling looks crap even after 2 coats now having read other reviews not convinced the smell will go away... save your money dont buy this product ...
Painted ceiling lounge and dining room and went on easily and easy to see any places we had missed on the second coat. Normal wet paint smell at first but as it dried began to smell different, now 2 weeks later foul smell on both rooms and not getting any better.
The smell is unbearable.
2 coats still no coverage.
Terrible odour, months later.
I painted our bedroom months ago and still have a paint odour, gets worse on hotter days. I have tried airing the room etc but it is not clearing.
I always use Dulux paints without any problems, but the odour from ceiling Nevermiss is terrible. will I have to repainted the ceiling to clear the odour?
Don't use - It drys to white but turns back to pink in humidity.
Dulux NeverMiss ceiling paint was easy to apply but we are not happy with it. We started by painting the cornices first two days ago and then would have progressed to the ceiling by today. It did dry to a white but it took longer in the bathroom. Yesterday morning the bathroom was nearly white but after having showers the paint turned a darker pink again. This morning the paint was white and after using the shower it had turned dark pink again.
We had also painted the laundry and hallway cornices. After seeing the paint in the bathroom turning back to pink I tested a patch of the hallway cornices by filling a spray bottle with water and spraying along the cornice. The paint turned from white back to pink!!!
The laundry still smells of the paint.
We bought plain white water-based ceiling paint to paint over what we painted with the Dulux NeverMiss when it occurred to me that the paintbrush with the new paint would just be washing the Dulux paint off and the new paint would be tinged pink also!
We now have the task of washing off as much of the dye out of the Dulux painted cornices as possible and using several coats of primer before we can paint with the other paint. I am hoping in time that the paint smell from the laundry will go away.
It could've been worse: we could have merrily continued with painting the ceilings, thinking that in time all the paint would dry evenly and we would be able to gaze on our lovely white ceiilngs (but might they have turned pink on a humid day?...)
We have always used Dulux paint, but first time with NeverMiss. We won't continue this paint job with Dulux paint.
Don't use it!! smell
I must say for some one who has used Dulux for years, I am very disappointed. I used this products years ago and loved it- obviously they have changed ingredients or there is an issue with the ingredients. Nasty smell even weeks after. Usually paint smell goes away in a few days-not this time!!
Very disappointed. Won't buy this brand again!
