Pet safe fence/shed paint - 20% off 4L with 25% extra free £2.99 - B&M Bargains

Found 5th Mar 2015
I have been looking for some pet safe paint for a while. It might not last as long, but when it comes to the safety of family members, it is important.

Anyway at B&M bargains, there is currently 5L of pet safe fence paint, for £2.99. This is an absolute bargain, as the usual price in shops is £12ish, with offers bringing it down to about £8 every now and then. As an example at Wickes it was £11.99 for 6L.

This was in the Long Eaton branch, with plenty left (even after I took 6!). Now I just need to get around to painting all 27 panels... with about 1L per panel, you can see why a good price is important - this over Wickes has saved me about £45.

Might take a while to convince my cat to paint the shed, but a good price nonetheless.

If you don't mind could you explain what makes this pet safe?

Confused on why pet safe paint is made unless it's ingested

It's for people that can't afford to buy brushes or rollers, this way they can attach the cat/small dog/rabbit to the pole and feel good that the paint isn't toxic for the pet. It also comes with a free toothpick if you only have a gerbil.*


*Totally untrue.

I *think* the difference is that it is water based. Oil based ones would be very bad for our rabbits who every now and then decide to nibble on the fence (they aren't so bright).

You do have to give it a chance to dry (4-24 hours are the figures I have seen quoted) - just something else to remember.

TBH that sounds better than using a brush/roller as it's a pain getting inbetween those panels.

You're pretty much throwing your money away with that though,water based will be gone within a few months but I suppose pets are pets after all

That is indeed the problem. Whilst creosote (or whatever it is they sell these days to mimic it) would be undoubtedly be best for the fence, the bunnies come first! Likewise for those with dogs that like to chew on things...

Used this a couple of years ago found it to be very watery ,only lasted a few months and had to be re coated.
I now buy the ronseal stuff from home bargins £5.99 for 9L(great coverage)has lasted well up to now 8 months

Why don't you have normal fence paint here in uk? all i get is some watery fence treatment which you need to apply massive amounts of and it barely lasts 1year before you have to ''repaint'' again? Why don't you have Normal regular Green paint like in rest of europe which consumption is 5-10x less and it stays on for years before the wood starts to rot itself and only than falls of in chunks.

No good for my new Shed as I require a oil based one ( just bought Barrettine Creocote) to show next doors annoying mutt who's boss

Bought it last week, wasted money it's too watery

Pretty much all fence paints are water based now so I can't see the advantage in buying this.In fact all paints internal and external will be water based very soon as the decorating trade is undergoing a huge shift at the moment over to water based.
