The sheets are decent quality and are comfortable. However when I first opened the plastic packaging they had a foul smell. I wasn't too worried because I planned to wash before use, however as I went to remove them from the washer I noticed that they still smelled a but so I washed them a second time. Then after the second was still smelled a bit but thought they might be better after drying. Unfortunately after drying they still smelled so I washed them a third time and used both liquid and dryer sheet fabric softener and they finally smelled a bit better, even though they still had a faint foul smell. Had to use them as we were moving into a new apt and didn't have any other sheets.
