In February '13 we purchased a new cultured marble bathroom sink from Lowe's. I installed it the same day, replacing one that was in our home. From day one it has smelled awful...my wife says plastic, I say skunk. The odor has lessened a bit but it is still present. Today I pulled it out to check it over but the sink itself does not seem to smell. I changed no plumbing or venting. Any thoughts? Should I pour something down the drain? If so what?
This "odor" only exists in this room.

Forget using any chemicals to clear line that has odor

If anything try hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria that can cause bad smells

If that doesn't calla licensed plumber and ask them about water Jetting the waste line as water jetting will scour the lines removing the soap scum and other nasty stuff snaking leaves behind

Water jetting not only scours lines it does restore full flow as originally designed . Water Jetting is used for soft stoppages such as grease, soap film etc. Snaking is used to remove hard stoppages, rags,roots and hair
