Definition: Development of a yellow cast in aging paint; most noticeable in the dried films of white paints or clear varnishes is called paint “yellowing“.

Causes:

* Normal oxidation of oil-based paint or varnish
* Exposure to heat from stoves, radiators and heating ducts
* Exposure of oil-based paints to household cleaners that contain ammonia
* Lack of light

Yellowing Solutions:

* Use a high-quality latex paint, which does not tend to yellow. Oil-based paints have a tendency to yellowing, particularly in areas that are protected from sunlight and/or those areas that may be exposed to ammoniated cleaning products. This problem is common to millions of homes across America.
