it never fails to amuse me how many people with bad/obvious/pointless advice will post simply to "hear themselves talk."

yes, opening windows is great advice, but I'm sure you've already tried that.

Go to Sally's beauty supply and pick up salon strength air fresheners. The ones that are solid gels in plastic tubs that you unscrew the cap off of work REALLY well at eliminating all odors, especially chemical-y ones. I've been using them in my studios & tiny 1-bedrooms for years next to my cat litter box, and they also do a great job at eliminating cigarette smoke, leftover odors from cooking, "musty" old carpet/old building smells, and various other smells that cramped, old buildings are cursed with.
