Why does Harbor Freight always smell funny?

Ever notice that Harbor Freight doesn't smell like tool stores, hardware stores or auto parts stoes. It doesn't smell liek grease or new rubber or petroleum products. They always seems to have an odd smell to them.

Why does Harbor Freight always smell funny?

I'm beginning to wonder if that's the smell of the sweat of Chinese factory workers.

The small is cosmoline

The Smell in harbor freight is the smell of cosmoline. Its a chem they spray on metal to prevent Rust while being shipped across the ocean. Google it if your not familiar with what it does or what its used for... cosmoline
