 Do any of you know of any simple ways to reduce the smell of paint - e.g. placing an onion in the room?  We’re having the whole house decorated and whilst we’ve tried to use low odour paint as much as possible, there have been a few tins that seemed to have slipped through the net and it stinks.  Made me feel quite ill last night.  Windows are wide open by the way.

Thank you.

I've got no direct answer here (possibly because I rather like the smell of paint!) but there's current discussion going on about this topic on CureZone. Check this link - responses to the original question are obtained by clicking on the links under the grey box:

Hoping this helps,

I would try to sleap in another room than the one you are painting. Whilest there are a lot of low oder paints now and many based on water, I think a lot of gloss paints will still build up a smell over time. After 24-48 hrs the smell should have dispersed.
