To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My intent was to use this mat on the inside of a Thule car carrier so items would not slide around. When the product arrived, wrapped in plastic and inside of a box, it gave off a terrible tar-like odor that quickly permeated the house before I even opened it. I ended up having to the leave the mat outside due to the smell. It has been outside for about 2 months and still gives off a terrible odor. I am going to have to throw it out and buy a different mat.
I purchased two of these mats for my kitchen. When I opened the box they arrived in, I nearly vomited. The odor emanating from these mats was horrible--like mothballs x 1000. It was awful. At first, I hoped that the stench would dissipate over time, like happens with other plastics. But after two days, it most definitely did not. I started getting headaches from the smell. Since the mats arrived in a box that was half-torn open upon arrival, and they were so unweildy and disgusting, I just threw them in the garbage rather than try to repackage them and send them back. They were that bad. Eighty bucks, down the drain. It's a wonder they are even legal. They're probably manufactured in China from pure carcinogens. Save your lungs and save yourself the money. Find something better than this hazardous material.
