I had to wash these sheets about 10 times with even more rinses and using different detergents, washing soda, vinegar, etc just to try to get the horrible strong chemical plastic smell out of these! I believe the problem is the packaging, the packaging is vinyl/PVC which is actually very bad for health and environment, one of the most toxic plastics made. Very sad that this manufacturer chooses to use this! And, there is no way to contact the manufacturer about this or any other issue with these products! All they give you on their contact page is a street address! Besides the horrible smell that took a LOT of washes to get to even fade so they were usable, the flat sheet is also nearly too small to even be tucked under my mattress on either side or the bottom! The material is also somewhat thin, thinner than I'd like- and not all that soft, but with all the washes it got softer. The first 4-5 washes however they were not soft at all.

This is a beautiful quilt, with vibrant shades of pink, blue and green,. It looks beautiful over the bed and adds a nice contrast to the light colored walls and white furniture in daughter's room. It also seems to be well made. It was nice and soft right out of the bag, but I still I washed all pieces immediately after receiving the set (more on that in a moment). It fit easily in my home HE top loader, and washed beautifully following the instructions in the care tag. There wasn't any pilling or bleeding of colors (there are hot pink pieces next to white and sky blue ones) and it came out of the dryer quickly and wrinkle-free (tip: to avoid having to iron it, take it out of the dryer while still warm, and either lay and stretch it on the bed or as I did, drape it over a banister or railing, and it will get smooth on its own). My one complaint comes from the plastic smell it had absorbed from the packaging. Upon opening the bag I got a strong smell of PVC (you know, the "new kiddie pool" kind of smell) and airing it did next to nothing to clear it, but did give me a headache. So in the wash it went. In my opinion this does not decrease the quality of the product, but I wish the manufacturer would consider working on this issue, especially because this product is to be used by children.

We bought this because it is organic and we were done with plasticky vinyl pads that smell like PVC and sound like a box of rice crispies, complete with long nights of snap, crackle and pop. This in every regard is a winner, soft, quiet and totally odor free. We highly recommend this excellent product.

The fabric seems good, better than the old PVC sheet type. Had high hopes out of the package. Laboriously removed massive king mattress and worked the cover onto the split box spring only to find the zipper completely broken. I bought two of these and the other just about worked but I had to re-zip several times to get the thing to engage and not keep falling apart. The manufacturer could have spent a few cents more on a decent reliable zip and had a good product instead of shaving pennies and getting rubbish. Do not buy.

I was a little surprised when I took this out of the packet as I hadn't seen a polyester shower curtain before, only PVC. So it looked and felt quite light and I thought it would need a liner, but it doesn't, it's fine on it's own. It looks great in my white/black/sage green bathroom. It came nice and quickly to the UK, just 1 week I think. As others have said, colour well represented on screen. I have now washed it and it looks just as good.

I bought this after reading the reviews, but I should have listened to the one about the HARD SEAMS!! They really are HARD and very uncomfortable! And, like the previous reviewer stated...it is every seam around each and every block in the pad! It is like they ran pvc piping around each square! My husband began having back pain after sleeping on this, so I am returning it for a refund.

This pad is quite thin and a bit "cheesy" . The PLASTIC backing is not backed with another layer of cotton or poly. Instead it is just exposed PVC. However I needed a pad quickly...so I will keep it for later use in the guest room. I would not purchase this style of waterproof pad again.
