Why does flat or low sheen paint show hand prints and marks where I have scrubbed?

Help! I see handprints on my walls - what can I do?

In general, flat and low sheen paints do not have a high scrubbabilty. Areas that are of higher traffic or that are washed regularly should be painted with a higher sheen product. At minimum, an eggshell, satin or higher sheen is usually recommended in those areas for their overall durability.
