How To
Use Vanilla Extract To Tame Strong Paint Fumes
If you've been dissuaded from painting because of the fumes it fills a room with, adding a tablespoon of vanilla extract will help to resolve this.
According to the TikTok video, vanilla is a natural deodorizer that helps combat paint fumes wafting through the air.
The vanilla tip is best for paints that are alkyd, alcohol, or shellac-based, since they typically have a stronger odor than water or latex-based options.
Adding vanilla extract to these types of paints can be a serious game changer regarding how long those odors linger in your space.
When it comes to pale paint colors, don’t worry. The video shows that after mixing the vanilla extract in with the gallon of paint, it will disappear without impacting the color.
