Chicco car seat smells like sulfur after washing it

I have a Chicco car seat that I decided to wash the cover for (there were a few spill stains on it, etc., but it did NOT smell prior to washing). After putting it through the washing machine, and hanging it outside to dry on a nice day.... I noticed that it has a sulfur smell to it.

What is this from? Any solution to the smell? Is it dangerous for my baby?

Thanks.

Hi,

If this was a UK model this could be connected to the FR treatment (Fire Retardency) sometimes this smells a little like that, and sometimes a bit like fish (very odd, but it is there to protect you). I would contact www,chicco.co.uk or email sales@chicco .co.uk who will be able to advise further.

I hope this helps.

My dryer smells like sulfur . The clothes smell


Run a couple of hot washes with no clothes in the machine

Before you do dissolve some Soda Crystals in 2 liters of hot water and put them into the machine by hand.

Your machine smells because new powders wash at lower settings and do not contain bleaches and soda to kill off the grease which is washed off the clothes
