Hi friends! I have recently purchased my very first brand new sofa. I am very housebound and often bedridden, so I spend a lot of time on the couch! I have old beaten up furniture that I just try to live with. But I just had to get a new sofa. It was on the cheaper side of sofas, and I was fearful of chemicals and such But my sofa was literally falling apart and I have little money. So I did the best that I could in my circumstances and got a decent sofa. However, I have had it now for a few days, and my eyes keep getting irritated and my skin itches when I sit/lay on the sofa for any significant amount of time. …Is this off-gassing, do you think? Is it possibly formaldehyde or fire retardant? Will it go away? Will getting it cleaned help at all? I know that no one can have a definitive answer, not knowing my exact sofa, but I hoped that someone had some ideas. It is a fabric sofa, not leather. I got it on clearance so I cannot return it. ….I am so nervous that I may have made a huge mistake… Please, any experience with furniture allergies or chemical allergy to something similar? Any suggestions by any chance? I would deeply appreciate any thoughts and advice. Thanks guys!
