The mat itself is nice. The color is great and it is sticky, but the plastic smell is SO strong and it took FOREVER to get rid of. In fact, I can still smell it when the shower is hot. I had this outside for two weeks before bringing it in and it still was so bad I had to pour straight vinegar on it. That didn't do anything, so then I did bleach. It was awful. If I didn't throw away the other mat I would have thrown this one.
