Whether you’re painting a room or a piece of furniture, paint fumes that linger can be a major downfall of the project. Apartment Therapy has an easy solution for you, however, that should get rid of the problem overnight in most cases:

Paint fumes will go away on their own, of course, but if you don’t want to have them lingering you can get rid of the odor with a simple bucket of water and a handful of lemons.

If you don’t own a bucket, try using your largest pot for the stove (and change it frequently) and add a few lemon slices inside. Not only will the lemons give you a natural fresh smell, but the water will actually soak up the paint fumes your diy project left behind.

Thanks to Apartment Therapy for the tip!
