Why, oh why, oh why did I not listen to all the reviews complaining about the smell? I thought perhaps some people were just very fussy. The bath mat doesn't have an immediately obvious foul odour, rather a subtly vile smell. It actually gives me a headache. I tried airing it, no better really. I tried washing it, seemed to encourage the odour so much it made me gag. I'm not a bizarre hypochondriac, or one of those people with "allergies", honestly!
My husband and I are now reluctantly concluding that perhaps we should buy something else. Plus if it smells this bad then goodness knows what it is leaching into the water. We bought it for our baby, who likes to stand in the bath these days. I want something benign, so now I'm off to a real shop to sniff before buying.
I really can't give this any stars as it is just horrible really.
