Need some touch-up paint (porcelain) for Maytag avocado green. I see that Amazon sells some vintage appliance colors. Does anyone have a line on an exact (or close) match? Or should I try to get it custom matched at a paint store? Thanks for any advice!

The product you want is called Porc-a-fix, and it can be had in many colors. I think Maytag's Avocado is pretty close to the shade GE-Hotpoint made.

I had some touch-up paint mixed to match at a custom paint store here years ago.  I took the porcelain lid in for the color reference and they recommended high gloss floor paint for durability.  The Maytag turquoise matched perfectly.
