I order a lot of stuff from cheap import sites which means I’m getting quite a few products from China. Weird gadgets, craft supplies, you know the drill. If you do the same, then you may have noticed that some of them have a very strong chemical smell. Well you aren’t alone in wondering about this. This bare bones site chronicles the funky chemical smell that seems to be on everything from China these days.
This site doesn’t offer up any information on what the actual chemical is. It’s just tracing its appearance and sharing odd stories about what it may be as well as people’s reaction to it. This isn’t some weird conspiracy thing either, if you look in the comments on Amazon for cheap products, many of them remark on the strong chemical smell that comes with them.
There doesn’t seem to be any answers, at least not on the site, but still, if you’ve ever wondered, here’s a interesting website. You can check out the link above.
