Odor from new sink installation
MY new stainless steel sink, faucet and disposer were installed 10 days ago.
A nasty smell is coming from there - not a sewer type smell or mold, but a choking chemical smell. I thought at first it was from the mastic around the pipes and would soon disperse. I am leaving the cabinet doors open 24/7 - not convenient. I put a jar of air freshener there, and the smell overpowers it.
I checked online and one theory is that sinks made in China may have toxic chemicals in them.
I asked Lowes who did the installation and I was told smell should soon go away!
