My shower is in a "room" by itself, and the paint is peeling around the edges from the steam

    paint with "boat" paint. I had this happen. I scraped the pealing paint and bought paint for boats. painted the walls and ceiling. lasted for years!

    Be sure you prep the areas that are peeling, and have some sort of exhaust, or even an open window, when showering. The steam has to go somewhere. A sealer, like Zinsser watertite would help, too.

    You can scrape it down and repair it. Then pri e and paint with outdoor products.

    Scrape off the peeling paint. Sand the edges with 200 grit sandpaper to feather them with the rest of the wall. Prime with a good stain blocking primer like Kilz or BIN. Then use a good bathroom paint. Has a mildewcide in it. Do not use regular wall paint.

    the best thing to do is go to a builders yard and buy some clear wall sealant and teat the shower room with it as its made up of a water based sealant theres no time like the present no drying time needed just after you've pre cleaned the areas with clear water to get rid of the soap/shampoo residue eric

    still I would use something like Cillit bang with limescale remover to sort the tiles out and then coat the ceiling with the above water based sealer from the builders I think its an evostick product eric
