I fear I may have committed a minor faux pas and I'm looking for a
sanity check on my methods of dealing with it.
I put the last coat of gloss paint on the guest room on Thursday evening
in anticipation of it being used on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, two
days later and with two days left to go, the room still stinks of gloss
My thinking is that heat is more important that ventilation in getting
the solvents out of the paint so I have the window only cracked open
very slightly and have a fan heater running which is heating the room to
Is this the right approach? Is it actually making a difference or am I
just wasting money running the fan heater? Is there anything else I
could do to speed the process?
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
