Ok, so finally got one of those robot vacuums because both my wife and myself find it very hard to push regular one. Ok, so bought a Shark Ion model that has to have the magnetic strips to keep it out of the areas it is not wanted. I know don't tell me about the ones that can be programmed with the smart phone that we don't have. Anyway, the strips work ok, but they only come in dark brown color. Now, myself, I kinda like the contrasting strip, but the wife would like it better if it was more color coordinated with the floors. So I was wondering if anyone had run into the same problem and tried painting them. I was thinking a thin coat of spray paint maybe. Or will anything on the strip mess up the magnetic field???
