I just received a bag off of eBay where the seller stated they were from CANADA. Item location, CANADA. I get the bag in the mail, its from HONG KONG. It REEKS of mothballs. I was PLANNING on giving it to my mom as part of her birthday gift but now I'm almost embarassed to give it to her! My question is, if I WASH the bag, do you think some of the stench will come out? It's an epi noe. Would water make the mothball smell WORSE? As you can tell, I'm pretty pissed off right now. I'm just mad that I was deceived! Would washing the bag make the smell worse?
