    Got my new tq--good... Heavy perfume smell--bad

    So got my tq yesterday-- yahoooo!!!... But then i opened the package and it smelled like perfume soooo bad the wife made me put it in the garage so it didnt stink up the whole house... Im thinking whoever helped Adam with sewing had it on and now its all over the tq.... Do you guys have any ideas on how to get that scent out of it? Im allergic to perfume and there is no way i could ever use this thing with it smelling like this.. Any thoughts?

    put it in the drier with a bounce sheet and something slightly heavy like a small clean shoe so the quilt just doesn't spin to the edges. run it on medium to low heat.

    No, don't. Whatever perfumes or fabric softeners in the fabric sheet are not welcome in down. And the heat isn't needed, especially not if the dryer should stop with a hot part of it in contact with the fabric. Ouch

    Hang it outside. Ask someone without allergies to compress it completely, maybe in a bag, then shake it out to refill with air; and repeat a couple of times to enhance air exchange. Then rehang outside.

    I admire customer service, but not imposing costs that are needless until self-help proves insufficient.

    BTW. Lots of gear changes hands here, often supposedly barely used. But this nose knows. Not usually body odor; usually a perfume transferred from laundry detergent to clothes, anti-perspirant, or hair soap. Even detergents that are sold as scent-free and hypo-allergenic are not all scent-free even after two rinses with serious centrifuging extraction at each stage.

    Did we miss your email? Please accept our apologies. We have no idea how a perfume smell could have gotten on the quilt. We do not wear perfume and do not understand how this could have happened. Perhaps our assistant who was shipping the quilts might have had something to do with it? We will check with her tomorrow.
    If you are otherwise happy with the dimensions, please send it back on our on our dime, we'll send another one right away and personally see it all the way out the door. Again, our apologies.

    Adam, I received my Hammock Gear TQ and UQ and they smell like, well, I don't know how to say this delicately, but they smell like Ohio. Can I return these and get some that smell like New Jersey? I'm willing to pay extra if I could get them scented like South Amboy at Low Tide.

    You ever smelled South Amboy at low tide? It's intoxicating! The first time I flew into New Jersey, I fell asleep in the back seat as we drove down the Turnpike to the Jersey Shore. Suddenly, I was awoken by an overpowering stench that woke me up.

    "What is that horrible smell?" I asked. My wife said, "Oh, that's just South Amboy at low tide."

    Years ago here at our local UPS, a container of the most potent concentrated skunk smell you can imagine, broke open and attached itself to everything in their warehouse. We could smell it just in parts we received at a motorcycle shop. The wedding dresses that got skunked caused them a big problem. lol
