Hey all-tipped over a quart or so of paint thinner on unfinished basement floor 2 days ago. House still smells strongly--wondering what i can do. Aired out house and basement for whole day yesterday. Should i try sawdust and room odor absorbers? Thanks,Jardinista

RE: spilled paint thinner

Light something....lots of candles a fire in the fireplace....gas stove....something to burn that stuff out of the air...
Oh and be sure all liquid is gone....don't want to explode your house....just get rid of the smell.
Oh and the above tips also work for the smell of new paint in the house.
