Spray paint smell?

So I painted some sticks a few months ago and they have zero odor to them but the platform I spray painted still has a little stink to it. How long does the typical paint smell last after you spray paint something?

It can depend on a lot of things. I’ve had stuff I painted smell for 2 weeks. I painted some of my steps yesterday, threw them in the bed of my truck and drove to a spot 2 hours away in a storm. By this morning they had no smell

Yeah depends on material and paint. Are you leaving it outside? Leave it in the sun
Yeah it’s been outside for a few days now but it still has a paints smell. I will try in the sun, it’s in a shady area now. Thanks

Maybe hit it with a small dose of ozone if the sun doesn’t help? Or scent killer spray? Or dunk it in soapy water if it won’t affect the paint sticking?
just spit ballin a few possible ideas here...

When I used to smoke, I would de-smoke things with baking soda. I was thinking make a cream by adding water to baking soda, smear it on there, let it dry, leave for a day, then rinse off.
