It stinks of mixture of white spirit and gloss,it smells like the house as been decorated and I can't stand that smell. Anyone know when this smell will go away ?
I don't recall the other dart boards in the past smelling like this when we bought.

You'll get used to it within 48hours and won't notice it. It's the treatment that they put on the board to keep the cork supple.

A chopped up onion reduces the smell on gloss paint by absorbing the fumes - might work with your dartboard?

Yep I know about that but I have no onions in as I didn't expect this when I decorate I buy a couple specially,I hope the smell soon passes.
If I could guarantee it wouldn't rain I left it out in the garden overnight and brought it in today.

And then you get streaming eyes!!! :giggle:

I'd leave the cabinet doors open or stick it outside for a bit, Let the air get to it!!

Isn't white viniger supposed to help also? try leaving some of that out (tho you'll get vinegar smell) or apparently baking soda works also try that.

Think I will stick it outside! He should bought it and left it at work then brought it home after smell gone.
