Q: A quick question? Hello I recently decorated the 2 upstairs rooms in my house. I sanded and then varnished the floors and painted the skirting board with GLOS paint. The trouble is that now 5 weeks latter on the rooms (and the rest of the house) still smell of floor varnish and gloss paint. This makes sleeping in the house uncomfortable. Are there any tips to help get rid of the smell? Thanks Ian Dolan --  DOLAN, Ian Reply   04 November 2004 (Ref:1018)

Q: Gasoline Odor. Hello, One of the people I live with drove her gasoline leaking car into the garage. I noticed it when there were gasoline odors in most of the house. She removed the car to the outside and I left the garage doors open and put kitty litter on the areas that had not dried in five hours. My question is when I have someone sweep the litter out of the garage and it still smells should they repeat the application of the kitty litter until the smell is gone. Unfortunately we have a house where the garage is under the bedrooms and connected to the first level of the house where the laundry room is. The dryer is vented out to the garage and I am afraid to use the drier until the gasoline problem is gone. The vent is about two feet from the spill. We have a window in the back of the double car garage and a door on the side of the garage. We would like to close the two garage doors for security sake. Would one open window be enough ventilation to keep the smells in the garage until they evaporate. and how long can we leave kitty litter on the gasoline spills? And where do we dispose of the gasoline inundated kitty litter when we finish using it? Also is there a way of blocking the entry of the fumes into the laundry room through the door that is between that room and the garage? The garage doors have been open for 48 hours and the kitty litter has been down for 36 hours, all 40lbs of it. The mean temperature here is 20 degrees Fahrenheit so the gasoline isn't evaporating any too quickly. Thanks for your Reply. Reply  Dec 31 2004 (Ref:1057)

Q: chewing gum on drum inside my electric dryer  To whom it may concern, I have been attacked by an unforseen couple of sticks of gum that made it through the wash into my dryer. Now I need to know as soon as possible the best way to remove the rather disgusting looking mess that coats the entire inside of my dryer drum. My dyrer is an electric dryer, so there is no open flames to worry about. However my concern is for the heat build up when the dryer runs the next time, as well as what will our clothes smell like after they are dry? Can you give me an answer? Thank you very much, Robert -- Reply  26/12/2004 (Ref:1037)
