The Truth Behind New Pillows Smell

The Truth Behind New Pillows Smell

Congratulations on your new memory foam product! At Blando, we strive to deliver the highest quality sleep essentials, and we want to address a common concern that may arise upon unboxing your item. In this blog post, we'll explain the slight odor you may notice and why it's nothing to worry about. We'll also provide insights on proper handling and debunk the misconception that the smell is a defect or requires washing or product exchange.

The Initial Scent: When unpacking your memory foam product, you may detect a mild odor. Rest assured, this is a typical occurrence for freshly manufactured memory foam items. This scent, often described as a "new product smell," is a result of the foam's manufacturing process and packaging. It's important to note that this odor is not harmful or toxic and will naturally dissipate over time.

The Importance of Proper Ventilation:

To expedite the dissipation of the initial smell, we recommend giving your memory foam product some time to breathe. Simply remove it from the packaging and allow it to air out in a well-ventilated room. Opening windows or turning on fans can help accelerate the process. Within a few hours or days, the scent will significantly diminish.

Why You Don't Need to Wash or Exchange the Product:

It's important to understand that the smell is an inherent characteristic of memory foam and is not indicative of any defect or quality issue. The foam materials used in production naturally emit a temporary odor that is harmless. Washing or exchanging the product is unnecessary and may even damage the foam.

Our Commitment to Quality:

At Blando, we take pride in the craftsmanship and quality of our products. Each item undergoes meticulous manufacturing and quality control processes. Rest assured, your memory foam product has been carefully produced and packaged to ensure your utmost satisfaction.
