Sealing a door from exhaust fumes. Difficulty level: rental.
September 15, 2013 9:32 AM Subscribe
There is a door between my apartment and my landlords' garage. On the garage side, the cracks around the door are taped over with some sort of tape, and there is a big piece of styrofoam which blocks noise reasonably well. There is a nice air exchanger system in the apartment. But right next to this door is a bathroom which is a bit of an air circulation dead-end, and still smells a bit exhaust-y on occasion. What additional non-permanent steps can I take, affecting my side of the door, to further seal it off?

I'm thinking tape + plastic sheeting + something attractive to cover over the ugly? But what sort of tape? Painters tape would protect the paint on the door frame, but probably not be the best option for airflow impermeability. What are some other reasonable options? Thanks!
