    Does anyone know of a non yellowing gloss, or a gloss that won't go yellow within a year?

    We don't smoke and no one is allowed to smoke in the house yet the wood work is really yellow and it's been less than a year since I decorated.

    Any ideas?
    Oil based is preferred :)

    Thanks guys

    Non yellowing oil based gloss? Let me know if you find one :D.

    I also tend to avoid water based gloss, but I'm going to be using Sikkens BL Satura for a small bathroom with no windows, as the existing gloss doesn't last more than a few years before going yellow. If if a particularly bad spot, it may be worth giving it a go - just be prepared for some legwork to get a nice finish!

    A couple of years ago I used Dulux Trade Satinwood (oil based), as that seems to yellow much more slowly than pure gloss. Went on 2.5 years ago and it's still perfectly white. May be a good compromise, unless you really need gloss.
