HOW CAN I TELL IF MY WALLS ARE WATER BASED (LATEX) PAINT OR OIL (ALKYD) PAINT?

We recommend using some fingernail polish (Denatured Alcohol) on a cotton cloth and rub it lightly in an area you don’t mind some damage. If the paint becomes soft or begins to remove then it is latex or waterbed paint. If it’s not affected then it’s likely and alkyd paint.
