My husband has been a painter for over 40 years, he said to wait at least 36 hours especially if it is latex paint. Glad to hear the bathroom got painted!

The drying time should be printed on the can of the paint, or you could go to the paint manufacturer's website and find out. If you waited two whole days, you would be extra safe.
