When I took this rug out of the bag, it had a very strong fishy smell! Nasty! I did not want to go through the trouble of returning it since it didn't cost much, so I took it in the backyard and hit it with Febreze once a day for about a week. The Febreze and time outside did the trick on the smell, so I brought it in, and it is a nice enough rug. I have had it for about 2 years and it is holding up well (the smell has not returned). Arrived quickly and looked as I expected. I would have given this rug a higher rating if it did not arrive so stinky.
