Stinky Chair Mystery Solved!

You might recall from my previous post that we had an unsolved mystery involving James' chair. Mind you, this is the chair that he is always sitting in. Hence the reason for Brooklyn's comment. So, when he noticed a strange odor that seemed to be coming from the chair, he became very irritated. He commented about it every night for about a week (that is how long we have noticed the odor). I told him that I would clean his chair but it would have to wait until this weekend. He grew impatient and decided to clean it himself last night. He pulled it apart and shampooed the whole thing. This then gave him a burst of energy, or a moment of insanity, and he decided to start cleaning the carpet. Well he opened the closet that we have all of the blankets and sleeping bags stored in to get everything picked up and refolded and the smell just about knocked us over. My thought was "oh great, one if the dogs got in there and threw up." No! It was the wool blankets that James bought for Tyler and him to take to the Boy Scout Klondike Derby. Tyler put them in that closet about a week ago. Those things STINK! I don't know how they slept in them. I guess when it is 10 degrees outside and you are sleeping in a snow cave, it doesn't matter what it smells like as long as it is keeping you from freezing to death. James also requested that I mention in this post that he even took the initiative to put them into a giant Ziploc bag and suck the air out with the vacuum. Way to go Honey! Too bad you didn't find the smell BEFORE you cleaned the chair and carpet, huh?

Sweet! At least you have a clean chair and carpet out of the deal Sandi!! ;o) Too funny.

The blankets were not wet, they had been hanging in the garage for over 2 weeks. They didn't have the musty wool smell either. I don't know why they smelled so bad.
