I'm getting the whole inside of my house painted. The paint smell is a little heavy. How can I remove the smell?

For really nasty smells, rent an ozone machine (from a rental store) & run it for several hours (while your family is away). The smell will be TOTALLY gone in no time!

A great way to rid the house of strong paint fumes is with plain white vinegar. Just pour into bowls and leave them out around the house!
