New Car Smell! Off-Gassing Plastics?

7 posts in this topic

It takes a while (1 week) for my lizards to stop smelling like plastic.  Is there a solution you can dip/soak them in after they come out of the mold to speed up the off-gassing process?   The bass don't seem to mind the smell, but I do!  I'm not burning them or getting any smoke, and there is no color change on the clears and whites.

   What brand plastic has that smell?   I have smelled some that smelled like vinyl. I forget the brand. I don't know how to get rid of the smell until lures are 100% cures, but you can mask the smell with scents.

I'm glad you asked, I was about to post a similar topic. I have also found that if I put the baits in a bag before they fully cure, they retain that smell for a while. Do other brands of plastics do that? I've noticed it with LC's plastic. I don't think I had that with MF's, but I don't really remember.

Some plastics seem to hold that smell longer LC is one that smell hangs around a week or more. CCM does not hold that smell very long and not as strong.
