Smells like dried salted fish!
on August 15, 2014
'So happy to see this pillow delivered at my front door today! It's exactly what I needed - a firm wedged foam pillow with a zippered cover, which can be hand washed. However, it smelled like a dried salted fish - not many people can take that smell. The smell might be from a chemical that was used for treating foam pillow. If I did not need one bad, I probably would have returned it because that awful smelling chemical might be harmful to health. If this smell is not normal to this pillow, then probably mine was just shipped thru a stinky truck or it was probably seating next to a package of stinky dried salted fish. I am washing the cover with fragrant fabric conditioner and then I placed the foam outside the deck, under the sun. Perhaps washing the cover and airing out the foam would get rid of the awful smell. Otherwise, I will just have to put up with this awful smell until I find a better car seat pillow. Don't buy this if you are scent/smell conscious.
BTW, regardless of the smell, the foam is not that spectacular either. It's just like any other foam pillows I've had before. It is just hard to find one that is about one inch thicker than most foam car seat pillows - that's the only reason why I am sticking with this stinky one until I find a perfect pillow that is as thick as or thicker than this one.
