Beads were fine but very stinky
on March 15, 2014
The bead necklace itself was fine but had an overpowering odor. I couldn't keep in in the same room I was in so I put them in a closet with the door closed. After a week I took them out and they odor was still overpowering. We removed them from the plastic bag, spread them out on a sheet pan and set them in the sun for the day but the odor was still overwhelming. Finally, I washed them in dish soap and hot water. They still smelled but it was mild enough that they were usable. I wasn't expecting this party novelty to take so much of my time when I was prepping for the party. Once the smell was mostly gone they were a popular item at the St. Patty's Day party.
