Bathroom cupboard painted 3 weeks ago and smells vile

Postby Rosemarie » Mon Oct 18, 2010 1:53 pm

I have painted my large bathroom cupboard with Dulux satinwood and the smell is awful in that room and passage. The actual cupboard smells really vile, much more than paint,???
There are no windows in the bathroom which is off the hall where there are no windows.Air con in bathroom doesn't help.
It has been three weeks now and I have tried everything, washed it down with bleach and washing powder,sprayed it with different air sprays, left different room smelly things in there, all to no avail.
I am going to try an onion now and white vinegar if that doesn't help,any other ideas.

Oil based usually lingers for a while especially in hot rooms. Not too sure on a cure just leave all room doors open and well ventilated.
