  • You have to circulate air out. Keep her in your room for a while.

    Put a box fan in the window and point it blowing out. Turn the ceiling fan on. The next day, blow in (flip the fan). And then on day three, blow out again.

    The fumes are dangerous. If you can smell it, the VOCs are still leaching into the air. You can buy paint in the future that is zero VOC from Olympic. Lowes sells it.
