The Mattress Saga Continues

Not kidding! I have written a number of posts about our mattress, and the problems we've been experiencing.

The saga continues.

At the end of my last mattress post It's Not In My Head, I mentioned a smell that was emanating from the new mattress. This smell has not really disappeared, even though we tried airing it for the past few weeks.

It's a rather disgusting smell, and between My Sweetie and I we describe it quite differently. He describes it straight out as mold (mildew). I describe it as fried food.

In any case, the mattress smells. It does not smell new (as the Customer Service person was trying to drill into us). It does not smell pleasant at all.

To add to all of this, since we don't know what the smell is exactly, we worry about toxins. Thanks to our wonderful global market, where everything that we buy is produced elsewhere in the world, it is quite possible that the materials used in this particular mattress may not have been top quality. And we get to breathe that crap.

Anyway, not to belabour the point, we are getting yet another new mattress in two weeks.

Here we go again.............
btw....when I said that we were going to get a new mattress, this translates into a replacement mattress. The company will be coming to take away the existing mattress and replace it with the same model. In other words, we had an original mattress which got replaced, and now we are having that replacement mattress replaced.

Hopefully, the new mattress won't smell. LOL ;)

Glad your getting another one. In the long run you're going to be glad you insisted. Mold and mildew have an's kind of a musty smell. You have the right to get the product you paid for.

I thought you'd have the new one by now... they aren't very speedy, are they?
