I had 3 packages arrive at the same time so when I picked them all up from the porch the top box was close to my nose. I could smell a chemical odor coming from the box. When I opened the box the odor was stronger, then I took the sheets out of the plastic bag they were in and the odor was a little worse. The other 2 boxes were sheets also and smelled bad too. I should had returned them immediately but I put them in the washer to try to get rid of the odor. After the 1st wash they still had a smell so I sprayed them with some Febreze. After about 1 hour I put the Febreze sprayed sheets back into the washer. They still had a chemical odor so I washed them 1 more time for a total of 3 washes. On the plus side even after 3 washes within 6 hrs of arrival the seams are still intact.
I have been searching for Zebra satin sheets for almost a year now. Nobody seems to carry them, either online or in stores. I happned to come by this site on mistake. I must say I was a bit leery at first about buying them for such a cheap price, I've had my fair share of cheap sheets holding onto that disgusting plastic smell that they are packaged in. I am pleased to say these sheets after a few washed did no such thing and they held toghter nicely in the wash, they didn't fray or anything. The sheets I got had a nice soft silver tint to them which was a supirse I thought they were white, however I like the silver better than pure white. You can tell from the picutre however that they are silver tinted. The only reason I'd give this a 4/5 is because the top sheet isn't printed on the bottom it's a solid white which is a bit strange. I'd definately buy them again.
I ordered this as a sofa cover for my dog but not only does she love rolling around in it but rather than being overly silky, it has a density that is quite cozy. I am ordering this for my own bed in my bed size. Surprise Surprise !!!!
