ground blind odor

I bought a commander ground blind by sniper treestands on an impulse buy at the local tractor supply. I got it home and set it out for 4 days and there is still a vinyl like odor probably from the water resistant treatment.
Has anyone used any type of treatment to eliminate the odor or will this odor go away over time?

Re: ground blind odor

I would think the odor will lessen substantially over time if aired outdoors. Air it out during Spring turkey season. The turkeys won't care.

Re: ground blind odor

Took mine about 4 months to where I couldn't smell it. I put it in a location on my property where the wind has a tendency to funnel thru harder with the windows down.

It's a good spot. Just not today.

Re: ground blind odor

Had the same problem with a blind.

Filled a 5 gal bucket with warm water & dead down wind laundry detergent and washed the thing inside out.

Strung it up (open position) with some 550 cord off the ground to dry outside.

A few days later smell was gone!

I still spray it down with DDW after handling it.

Hope this helps, but now that everything is made in china it's loaded with chemical smells, etc.....

Re: ground blind odor

I spray mine early in the year with Scotch Guard and let it air over a few day in the sun and wind.

Re: ground blind odor

The spray will help, but if you wash it with the laundry detergent (available at Wal mart / Dick's) it will have the most effect on the stink.

Re: ground blind odor

Its gonna take time, just like rubber boots. Air it out. Use it during turkey season like someone mentioned. They recommend you buy your boots months in advance before you wear them afield for bow hunting.

Re: ground blind odor

Ha, I'd probably spray it with my homemade killer scent.
The m'am in the house ran over a mattress on the interstate and it caught fire. The vehicle was alright except for terrible smoke damage. Got a bill for $1500.

Sprayed it on a weekend a number of times with the homemade scent killer, and the smell went away. Remember well not spending that $1500. Ha!

And I don't worry if anyone believes nothing.
