    I used them, and mine stunk too! After they were all set out though, you couldn't notice it. I think it was mainly when they were all bunched together! I loved my placecards!

      If I had known this was the case I probably would have done something else! How am I going to transport these things to Mexico without stinking up the rest of the bag? I hope this isn't an issue with customs.

        Both my fiance & I almost passed out when I opened the Ziploc bag with 12 starfish!!! I should leave them out in the sun before packing up for Mexico.

          I just ordered some sample starfish - I am going to have the bleach and the alcohol ready! Thanks ladies!

                Wow! I was really loving this idea until I heard about the smell. Looking forward to hearing your solutions to this before I take the plunge.

                  We bought some starfish at a local party store, packages of 30 or so and they had a little odor but it went away really quickly. Hopefully that will happen for you.

                      I ordered 30 as well and they have a very faint smell. I used febreeze on mine and the smell went away. Good luck!
