    Dart Board - Why so smelly

    My partner needed a new dart board so he bought 1 yesterday from Argos,soon as he opened the box the thing stinks,he's put it in dart board cabinet and shut the doors but I can still smell it.
    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.
