Mothballs curse


Jun 10, 2006
Well, it's my turn - I've been hit by the curse:crybaby:
I actually smelled it thru the box at the PO :wtf: and I knew it :yucky:

At least it's a Petite Black Epi Noe in great condition and the good thing it's that I did not paid extra $$ for customs (maybe the smell scared them:roflmfao: )

I'm off to work on Pepe Le Pheow who's waiting outside :yucky: - I'll even try to put the Lampe Bergere inside:yes:
Thanks for letting me vent:s
it,s not weird -I'm to lazy to explain it so here it goes from Wikipedia

Mothballs are small balls of chemical pesticide and deodorant used when storing clothing and other articles susceptible to damage from mold or moth larvae. Older mothballs consisted primarily of naphthalene, but due to naphthalene's flammability, modern mothballs use 1,4-dichlorobenzene instead. Both of these ingredients have a strong, pungent odor often associated strongly with mothballs.
Thanks everybody for your support - I'll try and start with paper, turning it inside out, let in in the air etc.etc...I know everything it's just that I wanted to take it out tomorrow and I can'tttttttt GRRRRRR
Yeah, Sharona from HK - I knew about the problem with the bags from HK but I was just hoping that I won't get a smelly one :crybaby:

I go on that hope too when buying from HK. Thankfully mine didn't smell. There is a thread somewhere with various methods you can try to get the smell out...I'll try to find it for you.
The bag is in great shape and I'm sure that I will be able to get the smell out (can you tell that I'm a positive girl ;) ) I always wanted a little Black Noe and I don't want to hunt another one down.
