Did you ever enter a clothes stor feeling the bad smell of some chemicalls in the air? Most of these stores have chinese products in there. Here are some facts and reasons:
Fumigants added to the shipping container to kill bugs such as longhorn beetles and other stuff that people don’t want to import into their countries.
Mothballs packed with the textile items, but infusing everything in the shipment.
Residual solvents from items varnished or laquered on productions lines and packed immediately they’re dry enough to handle.
Volatiles evaporating from oils used to coat tools made from cheap steel.
Outgassing from new plastics, including packaging.
When you feel this kind of smell, avoid the products. Think about all the alergies and skin troubles you can get wearing this clothes, think about other people smelling your chinese flavorss, think about your image.
