Re: how to absorb off gassing of new washing machines

When I have something that big that needs to outgas, sometimes I have to cover it with something because of my chemical sensitivity. It takes time for those toxic chemicals to dissipate. Hope your laundry room isn't near your BR.

I had to cover my entire washing machine totally, all the way around, under and over, with a tarp. The tarp did not have a negative effect on my health so I was able to use it indoors, to cover the washing machine.

However, the slightest, tiniest leak would have a major nasty effect on my health.

On washing day, I had to leave my home and then, when the wash was done, my wife would have to air the place out for 30-60 minutes. Then, and only then, was I allowed back into my home!

We finally gave into the almighty washing machine and moved it out to our Florida Room. The washing machine is now happy, my wife is happier; and I no longer have to live in fear that the tarp will spring a leak, or that my wife would make a small mistake when she resealed it 100% after finishing the wash.

How did you make out with your washing machine?
