Wheel Chocks

Ok so I bought these rubber wheel chocks from Harbor Freight and they stink like rubber so bad I don't know what to do with them? I would take them back if I could. They stink up my garage up so bad I can't leave them in there. I left them in the Florida sun for over a month to degas been spraying them with FeBreze and nothing.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to use them but can't leave them in the shop. They even stink up my yard, I'm ready to trash them. What do you guys think? Thanks

Dave

I bought the same chocks and mine also stink really bad. I've got them in the bed of my pickup truck for now, and the smell seems to be getting better. However, my plan was to take them back because of the smell. They even make your hands smell bad if you pick them up to move them, and the odor lingers for quite a while.

Have you tried washing them off? Mine had a film on them that smelled pretty strong, washed them with all purpose cleaner and rinsed, smell is gone on mine

I think you need to move north where we get bad colds and our noses get plugged - all stinky problems solved at that point

That's what I moved down here 5 years ago. I hated to the cold. My nose has been fine ever since.
