Why Are Painter’s Clothing White?
If you have ever stopped to look at painter’s clothing, it always seems to be some combination of a white t-shirt and white pants or overalls. Now, if you’ve ever wondered why painter’s clothing is always white, then you are not alone. There are quite a few theories as to why white seems to be the color of choice.
1-Easy to Bleach
No matter what color paint you get on your clothing, white will allow you to bleach it. Plus, bleaching will help rid your clothing of any other stains that come along with the job.
A painter’s clothing makes them identifiable. When you see someone show up at your door with this white ensemble, you immediately know what he or she is there to do. Even if there are colored paint smears on the clothing, you still can instantly tell that they are there to paint.
3-Most People Want White
While the trend to wear white is starting to change, many people have asked painters to come in and add white paint to their home or business for decades. White was always the color of choice, and to hide the paint splatter, the painter’s clothing matched the most often used color. White also works well to hid the marks from when a painter was priming.
