Gloss paint on skirting, windows sills and doorframe mistake

Postby Flo » Fri Mar 19, 2021 9:47 am

Hi, I’ve painted oil based gloss on the skirting/ window sills/ doorframe. I was unaware how smelly and the harmful VOC it releases are. Is there anyway I can fix this?
It in my toddler bedroom and too worried to let them sleep in there.

Hi flo,
Leave windows open and in a few days the smell should be substantially reduced.
