I have A LOT of paint that I want to use, so I don’t want to buy more. I want to paint my basement bathroom and was wondering if there exists an anti-mildew additive I can put in my paint?

Absolutely. The EPA limits the amount of mildew inhibitor manufacturers are allowed to add. Most paint dealers sell the additive in a per gallon dose. You will be best served if you will use the "boxing" method to intermix your gallons as opposed to trying to stir them.
