For the longest time, I’ve struggled with trying to figure out what the perfect hobby for me was. I needed something that wasn’t too expensive (because Adulting 101 also includes following your budget!). It should also help me unwind after a long hard week of working an 8 to 5 job (whether online or offline). I’ve tried a lot of things like pottery, hiking, and kickboxing, among others. But now that we’re in the middle of the pandemic, I had to fine-tune my search for the perfect past time that can be done in and around the house. Even if I’m saving a bit more money by not applying for any classes, there’s always an extra clean-up involved at home after I’m done. Make your hobbies, and your life, easier for you with Virtuoso Silk Touch easy clean paint.

Da Vinci Who?


People have turned to the arts to find comfort and escape during the pandemic. Facing an empty canvas can be both daunting and exhilarating at the same time.  It doesn’t even have to be an actual canvas. I’ve bought a relatively affordable watercolor palette and a few sheets of paper to start on the journey of discovering my inner Picasso (or Da Vinci, take your pick). Paint a portrait of your dog or do something abstract. There is no limit to your imagination. Go wild! That colorful mess at the wake of your creative haze? Don’t worry about it. Let Virtuoso Silk Touch make cleanup easy for you.

Formulated with Teflon Surface Technology, Virtuoso Silk Touch makes common stains like water-based craft paint easy to clean.  Yes, Virtuoso works with water-based craft paint. But, make sure that you wipe off the splatters of craft paint while it’s still wet! Once it dries, then I guess your next project would be a wall mural.

Plantita Goals


A lot of people have morphed into plantitos and plantitas in the last two years. We have more time at home now. And, something about having a house full of plants just spark joy, you know? My extended family is no different. Suddenly, our family viber group is bombarded with pictures of herbs, flowering plants, and vegetable gardens that each family has started in their backyards and inside their homes. At my house, we have sinigang regularly since we have eggplants, okras, and kangkong plants thriving in our indoor garden. It’s definitely empowering to be able to grow your own food. But, you really have to get down and dirty if you want to grow your own vegetables. With Virtuoso Silk Touch, the post-repotting cleanup will be a breeze.

Aside from being an easy clean paint, Virtuoso Silk Touch is also formulated to be antibacterial. This is great since you’ll be working a lot with soil and fertilizers. But just because your walls are antibacterial, it doesn’t mean you are! Make sure to wear aprons and gloves just to be extra safe. Always wash your hands (and under your fingernails!) and disinfect right after.

Some Final Thoughts

There are a lot of other hobbies out there that you can get into. Do a quick google search and I’m sure there’s something that will spark your interest. After being mostly cooped up for almost two years, we all feel a bit meh at home. I get it. I feel it, too. Get busy, get creative, and take your mind away from things that are out of your control. Do you have any hobbies that you’re currently working on? We’d love to know all about it. Slide into our DMs on Instagram, Facebook, or just send us an email at
