It Stinks! (Literally)
on December 26, 2014
I'm not sure if I didn't get a return...and therefore it is possible that the item doesn't have the offensive odor that I'm complaining about. When I received it, the top of the box was open. I took the item out of the box to make sure I had all the pieces and to see if it was damaged. I never got around to assembling it, so I cannot comment on how easy it was to assemble or whether the doors closed. The plastic was lighter than I had expected. For me, it probably would have suited my needs since I was using it to store board games and lightweight items. However, for garage or kitchen pantry use...it probably couldn't handle a bunch of cans without bending.
However, when I took the item out, I was nearly knocked over by the smell. It smelled like gallons of Windex had been poured over it. Now, if someone had returned it, that might be the explanation. However, I am getting to the point where I am getting wary of buying anything plastic these days. If you don't have a good quality plastic, there can often be a bad odor that can be overwhelming to people who have a sensitive respiratory system (like me). Other people may not notice it.
