    Just got my new incubator, and it did have a bit of the smell. Oddly enough, putting it in the dryer didn't help at all. Figuring time will help - and as it's an UQ and not very close to me most of the time, it isn't a huge deal.

    I just got my burrow and incubator 20. Both stink like an old fish tank.
    I can smell them from 4 meters away.
    I'm not too worried. I'll just give them a good airing out for a few days and I'm sure they'll be fine.

    Mine stink. We had geese growing up, smells like geese. They've been outside for over a week on my turtledog right now and still smell. You'll get used to it. The neighbor kids come over and say it's smelly, but then hop right in. In this heatwave we've got I've convinced my wife I need to sleep outside every night to get proper rest...so far it's working.

    Interesting, I use my down quilts year around, on my bed, under quilts and a top quilt for my hammock. I keep the quilts aired, the bed quilt goes into a commercial dry (biggest I can find) every so often to get a good drying and shaking. I always carefully make sure my top and underquilts are dry before packing away in a loose king size pillow case.

    I have noticed lately anything with plastic gets a foul smell. I do not remember this being a major problem in the past however it has been over the past 18 months. I do not store anything with lines on it such as Amsteel, derma and the rest of our super strength cordage around anything plastic (I know there is probably another technical name for the substance totes, bags and other items many of us use for storage.)

    As most posts suggest, air the item out, do not hang it in the sun, don't let any critters christen it (pee on it).

    I must comment that airing down is a great way for the smell to go away, I sometimes find the smell again and all I do is just air it out again. I have no idea why the smell comes but I want to assume is for being compressed as other have mentioned.

    I've got to be honest, I have four TQ and UQ, none of them have an odor. Maybe I have a broken nose.

    The lesson seems to be: do not store down in a sealed container.
