How to Remove Paint Odors from Inside the House

Painting a room in your home can be an easy way to spruce up your space. And with so many of us staying in and working from home for the foreseeable future, repainting a particularly bland room can also be a great source of entertainment. From deciding the right color to gathering all of the necessary supplies, the process seems relatively easy! Just repaint and enjoy, right?

Not quite. While a fresh coat of paint can transform the appearance of any room, paint fumes don’t always leave behind the freshest smell. If you’re painting a room with windows, you can clear the fumes by opening windows to let in clean air, but let’s be honest, not every room has access to a window.

If you’re painting a confined room in your house, or just aren’t sure how to remove paint odor inside the house, try these easy and natural tips to get rid of paint odor.

Three Steps to Get Rid of Paint Odor

  1. Freshen air with odor eliminating Spray
  2. Continuously eliminate odors with Gel
  3. Use Candles and Wax Melts to burn away odors

Freshen the Air with Odor Eliminating Spray

For targeted, instant relief, get rid of paint fume smells with Fresh Wave odor eliminating Room Spray. To remove paint odor inside the house mist throughout the room that was recently painted. If you’re able to open a window, the added air flow will help distribute Fresh Wave’s proprietary odor eliminating formula around the room to knock out odors at their source.

If paint odors remain after a few hours, spray an additional layer of Fresh Wave around the room. Remember, the volatile molecules that comprise any foul odor bond easily. As you continue to add Fresh Wave to the air, they will safely get rid of fresh paint odor and leave your room smelling fresh.

Get Rid of Paint Odor with Fresh Wave Gel

When paint smells linger, especially in confined rooms, continuous odor elimination is required. Place Fresh Wave Odor Removing Gels in the room to get rid of paint odor without the need for outside air. As the Gel evaporates, it absorbs odor molecules and neutralizes these smells they produce. Even tough smells like cat litter or tobacco smoke can be eliminated with this powerful Gel, made from natural plant oils.

One 15 oz. jar of Gel is strong enough to work in an average-sized bedroom, living room, kitchen, or dining room. The slow-release of the Gel means it combats odors round-the-clock, even when you’re not in the room.

Burn Away Paint Fume Odors

If you’re looking for a more elegant solution to get rid of paint odor, the Fresh Wave Odor Removing Candle can neutralize malodor molecules in the air. Once you’ve finished painting, position a clean-burning, soy-based Fresh Wave Candle in the freshly painted room. Place the candles on a flat surface away from drapes or curtains and allow them to burn for several hours. If you’re burning your candles for the first time, make sure you let the wax burn across the entire diameter of the candle. This will help your candle last longer get rid of fresh paint odors more effectively.
