Mine does too. But hey, it's a bunch of chemicals that remove a bunch of chemicals. You can't expect it to smell like roses.

Yes it does, but it's not as bad as spraying Excel onto bba. I have to stand back to breathe.

Sulfur compounds do that. It's the same chemical group that makes skunks smell like skunk.

Yea really smells lol in my cabinet I use air fresheners like glad stick ons. But yes it's definitely the sulfur. Kind of reminds me of when we get call at factory's and the batteries are burnt up. That stinks the whole building up!

Consider yourself blessed! lol. And training has taught me never ever stick your nose in anything ever. Fire call years back a guy had mixed a cocktail of chemicals in a soda bottle, someone went over to find the source of the odor and took a nice whiff and collapse so no thank you.

Oh gee well I must have some odd body chemistry to not be able to smell it. Well I can, but only if my nose is near the bottle opening!

Ah Convict, sound advice!
