Paint fumes are really exasperating especially when it is a newly painted home. The odour comes from the evaporation of solvents in paints. Sometimes just giving the appropriate ventilation can do the work, but in some instances the smell can hover for more than a day or more. Eliminating such paint fumes is very easy and you can do it yourself with the readily available items at your home.
Lit the Candles
You can get scented candles in market available in various flavours. This is an effective way of getting the smell off from the room. Lit the candles and after some hours you shall experience an odourless room.
Charcoals are another very effective way of eliminating paint fumes from the newly painted walls. Charcoal has an amazing property of absorbing paint smell and leaving your home odour free.
Coffee beans are also an alternative for reducing the paint fumes. The best chareceristics of coffee beans are that apart from absorbing the smell they release a soothing coffee aura in the entire room.
If you are unable to find a charcoal you can by all means use baking soda for eliminating the paint smell. Baking soda also has the characteristics of absorbing bad odours. Place a bowl of baking soda in the painted place to get away from the strong smell.
Water And Lemon
Fill up a bucket of water and toss in a few sliced lemons. The water will absorb some of the solvents in the air and the lemons will add a fresh, clean scent to the room. Place it in the room while you’re painting and leave it for overnight for the best results.
