    Default Stinky particleboard

    Why does particleboard stink so much when wet and then retain the stink even after drying out? Leaky kitchen sink waste drain caused it and the particleboard below still stinks after drying out. Anything other than replacement to cure the stink? I sprayed clear laquer over it after drying it out but it still stinks. Thanks.

    It is releasing Formaldehyde, and you should do an internet search about it because in many cases it has to be removed, but it could be an insurance issue.
