Paint fumes will not go away :(
Oh I am so glad to find this forum. I hope you can help.
A few months ago I moved here, and the closets were painted. I do not know what was used, but the smell will not go away despite my ongoing and costly efforts. There are no windows in there unfortunately, but I have been keeping my bedroom window open, and a couple of oscilating fans have been running in there. I have tried everything to remove the odors. Weird suggestions of cut up onions, baking soda and vinegar in bowls, and even using both to clean the walls down. Lysol, bleach, soap and water, OdoBan, oxi clean, vanilla extract in a bowl. It works for a couple of hours and then its right back again.
So yesterday I couldnt take it anymore and decided to go with a tip to repaint. BIG mistake. I used glidden satin/eggshell, I tried doing one built in shelf.... man that is SO strong again.
Can someone PLEASE help me. I cant handle this anymore and Im at my wits end here.
