3. Do not paint in hot or humid days
Unless you do not have problems in wait days for it to dry the paint. Also remember to open the windows , not only to dry fast, but to vent strong odors . Use low VOC paint if you want an option with fewer chemicals and odors.

Let the paint dry for at least 24 hours before using the space again when you’re done , to prevent smudging.
