Mattress Odors

Sensitivity to certain smells can vary from person to person. Much like new cars, you may detect a "new mattress" odor. If you are experiencing an odd odor from a new mattress, we recommend that you allow the mattress to air out for at least 24 hours before putting on your sheets and linens.
