  • Well, honestly burning a polaroid releases toxins.
    You need to air out the room and wash everything down.

  • Burn some popcorn in the microwave - hehe!
    But seriously - as the ladies said above - open windows, fans, candles, and maybe even some lysol.

  • I would do a wet-mop of all surfaces. The smoke can leave a slight smelly film on everything. So, open up your window, and wipe away . .. cabinets, floors, fridge. You shouldn't have any smell after that.
