Question removing paint odor

I'm doing some interior repainting. My husband seems very sensitive to the smell. Is there anyway of getting rid of the fumes/smells quickly? Thanks

Removing paint odor

I frequently see mentioned that if you place a bowl of vinegar in the room that it will absorb the paint odors. I always crack a window and run a fan.

adding a teaspoon of vanilla extract to a gallon helps the odor. Another method is a product called Odor Eliminator which is added to the paint.
Also, try a low odor low v o c paint. One is Harmony by Sherwin Williams.
