I recently read a post about on this site from a pregnant woman who used Goof-off in her house. We've had the same situation with a 7-month pregnant woman in an apartment in NY.

A relative used Goof-off Professional to clean paint off an upolstered sofa. We opened the windows and turned on the air-conditioning, but we did not wash off the Goof-off since the sofa manufacturer said not to use water on the fabric.

Even though we've kept windows open and the pregnant woman has avoided this room, there is still a smell in the apartment. What do you suggest?

Would baking soda and a vacuum get rid of the smell? How long do these fumes take to go away?
