So a bra from a listing came recently, and it has a strong perfume odour. Now, I’m pretty sure that it was not the sender’s fault because I have dealt with them before and never had a problem. Plus, she says that she doesn’t wear fragrance and is also sensitive to scents as I am, so I can only assume that something happened to the package because even the envelope has the smell. There’s zero hard feelings towards the sender. This must’ve happened after it was mailed.
So anyway, I was initially going to try to wash it and see if I could get some of it out, but it’s a brand new bra, and as it does not fit, I’m probably going to list it once I can be around it to measure. So I thought maybe I will put it by my open window in my spare room and let it air out instead, but I don’t think that’s helping as it still has a smell. So I’m not sure what I should do. I’m less inclined to wash a brand new bra that’s only been tried on when I’m not even positive that it will fix the problem. But I also don’t want to send it to someone else who might be sensitive to smells like me. I am already getting a headache from the sniff I did earlier to test it out.
I mean, I could just do the measurements and get them over with and treat the headache and list it, with full disclosure that it is perfumed/has a scent. But I’m wondering if I have other options.
