    Which paint would you use to paint a radiator. I want it so that the radiator can be wiped down without wiping the paint off, it doesn't chip and also when hot i can put clothes on to dry without the paint coming off on the clothes. Is there any such paint? :)

    There is enamel paint designed specifically for radiators, often just called radiator paint. It's quite chip resistant and can easily be wiped down (and won't imprint on drying clothes!).

    Here's a spray version from Screwfix:

    Anywhere like B&Q, Wilkos, Homebase, etc... will sell their own version :). Here's a paint on version from Wilkos:
