Hi Dorothy,  some folks have sensitivity to chemical odors others are not even aware of.

And personally, if one needs to install plug in air fresheners and douse themselves with odor masking sprays and fluids, let me posit that there is hidden sh-- somewhere in their life!!!

Also saying "properly glazed pots" is similar to saying "virtually vitrified"....."virtually pregnant"......(sorta pregnant)............?????

No pottery is "completely" anything, so the strong penetrating odors could become accumulated on the micro surface, or find their lodging in the micro cracks of the glaze or bare body areas "virtually" all pottery is subject to.

I'd recommend that the potter would first take a hot scrub suds bath and trim her/his toenails, and then review what constitutes a truly "properly glazed pot." and why the air must be "freshened."

And don't invite me to go on a rant about North American fear of nature VS the refreshing odors of excited pheromones and fresh air from a clean and natural environment.

Misneach,

David Woof..................douse it on, squirt in every body orifice,... Oh Doctor why oh why am I so sick......Doctor you're right!   I'M sure I agree, its's the Talc .................................................................................................................

Someone posted on claybuddies a customer reporting that the pottery they had bought smelled. The potter noted that the pottery had been near a plug-in “air freshener”.  On further thought: could properly glazed and fired pots absorb the odor? I know that walls do, but pottery?  There may be something this potter needs to know.
