I have several tins of Dulux Weathershield (water-based) paint.
On each can it says "This product is for exterior use only"
Why can't I use it inside?

Dunno, maybe the solvents aren't particularly healthy. Water based
paints do contain them in small amounts, and they're not all harmless.
More likely is that Dulux would prefer to sell you something else.

I can see no reason other that possibly there is a chalking effect
which might possibly result in particles that are not good for you
I suspect this is most unlikely and that there is no reason but the
simplest way is to ask their technical department
I would appreciate knowing the answer!

I think it used to include a fungicide to keep it white.

So why should the inclusion of fungicide preclude its use inside?

It wouldn't. But if the fungicide is 'nasty to humans' it might be a bad
idea to live in close proximity in the relatively confined environment
indoors. But it wouldn't preclude you doing it if you wished to risk
poisoning yourself.

(I do not know what fungicide is used, nor what its effects are on
humans or pets.)

Have you missed the leather sofa saga unfolding?
People have been hospitalised and maybe killed as a result of fungicides
being in the sofas.

Bollox. Yet another scare story, originated by uneducated wingers and hyped
up by the media, who should know better, but don't.

obviously the folk in the group never sit at on the sofa, so we missed
this one.

So what about the fungicide in wallpaper paste?

Probably no reason, except that you won't get a very good finish.
Which is of less concern outside.

Perhaps the court case will make it clearer?

bollox to you.
It is true, not a scare story.
If you see some of the damage you will understand.

Sorry Richard if you were going for the all time record for replying to an outdated post but at 11 years you have missed out we already have one at 15 years old.

Yes the sad part is that I remember it from the original posts.
I'll shut up now.
However when on Home rip off clubs site I can clearly see the year and date
of a post there, how come most people cannot. Hint I am blind, so one might
expect I'd be the one not to see it.
