The National Painting and Decorating Show 2015 turned 21!  It took place in December at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry and was an overwhelming success according to both exhibitors and visitors alike.  Over 3000 painting and decorating industry professional’s visited over the two days – a record – to see nearly 100 stands showing the latest and best products and services in the industry.

A huge highlight of the National Painting and Decorating Show 2015 was a visit from Phil The Power Taylor.  Widely regarded as the best darts player of all time, he was completely thrown by the power of the best wipes of all time!

It was another great opportunity for Big Wipes to interact with painters and decorators, most of which are already long-time users of Big Wipes hand cleaning wipes.

Decorator Product Review

Especially popular with the trade are our black lidded Multi-Purpose wipes.  As Charles Budd, Decorator Extraordinaire, said in his P&D Product Review: “They are a great general purpose wipe.  So if I’m to take one tub of wipes on a job, they’re the one.  They’re good for degreasing and cleaning surfaces prior and after other preparation.  They are also very good at removing really sticky sealants such as silicone and window sealants like Repair Care Dryseal or Graft MS Sealant”.

Charlie added: “They’re strong. I use them again and again, rinsed, recharged (if necessary) with Power Spray. And once used, I keep them all in a bucket to dry out.  Then I use them to wipe the edges of paint cans, or brushes before finally throwing them away.  Every wipe is well used before disposing of!”


The National Painting and Decorating Show 2015 is the UK’s only dedicated national exhibition for the painting and decorating trade. It offers the widest range of international products, materials and associated services for professionals.  In addition, one can see demonstrations of latest application techniques and business-boosting ideas and tips.  Of course, another huge draw is the big discounts on a wide range of products.  This truly is one event not to be missed.
