Eliminate Paint Fumes

YLEO spOILed logoI will never be accused of being a neat painter. When I paint there are times I wonder how in the world I got paint here, there and wow how did it get there! Lets be honest it isn’t at times it is all the time.

We recently redid our daughters room. We painted her floor because, well, the plan was to rip up the floor and to put new down. But as we tried to remove the floor we found it was not only nailed but glued and it took us a good 3 hours to get a 10 x 12 inch square out. Plus it wasn’t really even so we went with plan b which was cover up the mess and paint.

IMG_0599This is how I looked after I was done painting the floor.  Note the paint in the hair, paint below the neck. You couldn’t see the paint on my arms or my ear and I even had some all over my legs and pants.

This is how I look after I paint anything. And I love to craft. Doesn’t matter what I am painting, it can be big or small, I still end up with paint all over me.

Personally I am not a fan of the smell of paint. Plus just because it is getting colder out, I can’t have the windows wide open while the painting process is going on. That leaves the smell trapped in the house for even longer.

So I decided it was time to try something, anything to not have as bad of a smell. I have in the past spent more money and purchased Low VOC paint but to me it still smells. This time when painting my daughters walls I decided that I was going to add some Young Living Peppermint to the gallon of paint. I was amazed at how much better it was!

So I now have a solution for when I paint in the winter time!

  • 1 Gallon of Paint
  • 1 15-ml Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Mix Well
  • Paint as Usual

Of course this doesn’t solve the problem that when I paint I get it in my hair, arms, legs, and clothing but at least the odor is much better!
