I need to get rid of 2-propanol acetate vapors and its smell and need some chemistry help.

Some possibilities I came up with:

  • soap and water to rinse surfaces because soap might help increase its miscibility with water?
  • Air out with a fan because it’s heavier than air
  • Use an ammonia-based cleaning solution
  • Using an ozone generator

My concern with using the latter two is if they can produce any undesirable reaction products. For example, a reaction with ozone would produce alkyl radicals and then peroxides, which wouldn’t react well with the remaining 2-propanol acetate organic molecules.

Any ideas?
