Since putting up 5 sets of new curtains in my living/dining/games room, I have noticed an odd plasticy, I guess chemically smell, as soon as I walk into the room. I thought at first it was a forgotten mouldy lemon in a fruit bowl, but I've narrowed it down to the curtains. Any ideas how I could reduce this smell? Please don't anyone say I have to wash them...I ironed them all before hanging and for 10 m of window, that is a lot of ironing.
You know how you don't notice the way your house smells because you live there all the time? - be it the combination of your washing powder, brands of cleaning products, perfumes, pets etc. But as soon as you walk into someone elses house you notice their particular house smell.... nice or otherwise. well I'm figuring that since I notice this smell all the time, to a visitor it would be quite strong.
I'm feeling quite disenchanted, because it's really bothering me and I spent so much time deciding how to cover these windows, I want to be really happy with them, and basically because of this I'm not.
ta for any suggestions..
