Kitchen cabinet paint

Howdy from the Big Muddy, I painted my kitchen cabinets about 4 years ago. First time I had used a water based enamel (juries still out for me). I bought the best (?) that was at Lowe's and what was highly recommended. Within a couple of months, having white tile on the tops, I noticed long runs and realized they had been discolored by the bleach I used on the white tile.
Is their a cabinet paint that is stain proof and/or bleach proof? Which paint do you recommend for kitchen cabinets?
Thank You, Tim

Not sure what you mean about the bleach discoloring the paint? How much bleach was used and why? What color are the cabinets? why wasn't the bleach wiped off of the paint shortly after it got on it?
pics could be helpful -

Bleach is caustic, keep it off your paint.

Waterborne enamel with white or oil based enamel in any color is my preference for a cabinet. Keep in mind that you will find better paints, supplies and advice in a paint store than a paint department.
