Beware of TOXIC SMELL from thermal lining
 from Los Angeles, CA,  Mar 31, 2011

BEWARE of the thermal backed curtains from Overstock. I bought 3 pairs of curtains (1 of each of the 3 available colors). The specific product name is "Thermal Backed Tuscan Blackout Curtain Panel Pair". These emit a TOXIC smell, especially when the sun hits them. Quite disappointing, because these absolutely look beautiful. They gave off a smell coming out of the package. Washing them will make the smell go away temporarily. Unfortunately, once you hang them, as the sun hits the thermal lining during the warmer months, the smell will make you GAG. I bought these curtains last Winter, so it's been cold and the smell was somewhat bearable. Now that Spring is here, it was quite warm today and now all of my bedrooms smell like something a little worse than burnt rubber. I am going to contact Overstock and see if I can return them. Otherwise, over *** worth of curtains are trash.

  • How is the quality of the product? look nice, but smell terrible
  • Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? no mention of the latex type of thermal lining material which emits chemical smell
