Smelly wood furniture
We just bought a new bedroom set from Gothic Cabinet Craft for my 9yo ds. I am obsessed with keeping any toxins out of his food and environment.
So, the set is delivered last Monday (only the wood pieces, I ordered an organic mattress separately) and it stinks! I mean like you can't go in the room the smell is so overpowering. I have had windows open, fans blowing, heaters blowing. It's as if they stained and varnished this stuff the day before delivery. I called the store and basically they told me to open the windows. I'm so upset. My son has been sleeping on the floor in his brothers room for a week.
Any suggestions on what I can do about the smell? I don't want to just cover it up, I want it gone. Should I varnish over the furninture with a loc VOC varnish? How long should I expect this furniture to off gass?
