    I got my GHD's in November last year so they're 5 months old. They still stink!!! I thought at first it was coz they were new but they still smell vile! They work brill etc. No problems but the smell!

    Any tips on how to sort this? X

    Umm, not a burning smell or anything! Just unpleasant. When i first got them i thought it was just one of them horrible 'new' smells they sometimes have. . .but it's not gone. X

    Do you use any prodcuts when you use them?

    Sometimes products can build up on the plates (i.e. I use hair straightening spray) and then that can make them smell... I wipe mine with a wet wipe every few months to keep clean (not sure if you're supposed to though!).

    If not - they will still be under warranty (mine came with 2 year warranty) so maybe e-mail them and see what they say?
