    How can I get rid of the smell of gloss paint? 12th Mar 09 at 10:21 AM
    Hi everyone. I have tried searching for this but i dont seem to have the knack!

    OH glossed the wood inside our bedroom cupboard while he was (finally) sorting it out for me. That was saturday and i cant seem to get rid of the horrible smell of gloss!

    I open the windows in the bedroom most of the day with the cupboard door open and we have installed a vent too but after (almost) a week, it still stinks and i cant get our clothes back in until its gone.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of the smell or is it just a case of waiting?
