i want to repaint the interior of my house but don't know how to tell what type of paint has been used. How can i tell if it's oil or latex paint.

The answer is very simple. Put some denatured alcohol on a rag and rub a small inconspicuous spot. If it is latex, the alcohol will dissolve it and you will see it on the rag. The alcohol will have no effect on oil based paint.
