Do not buy! Has a sickening smell which makes you wonder about all the chemicals involved in the process of fabrication.
Soaked this bottle for 24hrs in very hot water which eradicated most of smell; after using first night now no strong perfume smell anymore. Good value
Disgusting hot water bottles, nothing would get the smell out, would like to know what they were made of.
Absolutely stinks of strong rubber had to take it back.
Absolutely stinks. Haven't been able to get rid of the smell yet..for the price I'll just bin it
Awesome just what I wanted
Wish I'd read the reviews - this hot water bottle smells disgusting. Washed it twice. Didnt hold onto reciept and going to have to throw it away. DO NOT BUY.
The stink is revolting. It makes me feel nauseous and has made all bedding smell. I’m gonna have to bin all 6 of them and their covers. DON’T BUY!!
VERY strong smell (fake floral/chemical smell)...makes me feel like vomiting. It permeates through everything, the kind of smell you cannot un-smell, and cannot get rid of. The smell fills up the room. The bottle is wrapped in a plastic bag so you can't smell it before opening it and there is no mention of the smell/coating on the write up on the bag (it's like an oily coating). Will be taking this back...after triple wrapping it...and driving with the windows down...with my head out the car.
Kept warm all last winter and got rid of stink by putting in dishwasher on quick cycle!
Smells absolutely terrible - scrubbed and scrubbed and couldn't get rid of the smell. Returned to store who could also smell and took back. Took forever to get smell out of bedding where hot water bottle was used.
Long lasting. Best hot water bottles available. The smell of them is definitely strong but I kind of like it
Really does have a very strong smell but performs well as a hot water bottle and I'm sure they all smell bad to start with. Probably smells because it has been sealed in a plastic packet to stop it from perishing.
All hot water bottles smellAfter a while the smell will be gone make sure you have a good cover on them
Bought four. Took them home. Opened them. Stinks like Chinese factory chemicals. Used it once. Made the bedding stink like Chinese factory chemicals. Left them outside to breathe. Everytime I walk past them, it reeks like Chinese factory chemicals. The same smell a week later. $20 wasted. Nasty product.
