    Thank you for any suggestions.
    It is to late to return it now. I got it on clearance about 6 months ago. It is a Fiskar....pink on one side and yellow green on the other side. I thought the smell would go away. its not as bad, but still smells. when I first got it I put it outside for a couple of days, that didnt work, I sprinkled baking soda over it, that didnt work. I will now try the vinegar. thanks again for all your suggestions.
