Summary
Cleaned floors with vinegar and rubbing alcohol (isopropanol), long story short I think it may have produced some 2-propanol acetate vapors. It smells sweet and the smell seeped into fabrics like clothes and upholstered furniture nearby. I’ve tried to air it out but only helped so much, maybe because it’s heavier than air and so doesn’t reach the window height?.... Any knowledge/ideas on how to most effectively, quickly, and safely get rid of the product and therefore its’ smell too?
some ideas so far: ozone generator, soap and water rinse, ammonia based cleaning solution, keep airing out maybe with a fan (but rather not risk any sparks and such either)
Ideally I don’t want to have to try a dozen things, so I’ll see what ppl support the most. Thanks science ppl!

Honestly, a fan and patience are probably your best bet.
