The chemical smell was overwhelming. I tried letting it air out but had too put it in the garage. It returned it the next day. It was a pretty rug but wasn't full enough so I would have probably returned even without the stench. Really disappointed.
HORRIBLE off-gassing. Could not get rid of the chemical smell so had to return, especially since it was a rug for my young daughter's room. Even the guy at the customer service desk commented on the smell before I told him the reason for the return. Soft and otherwise exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, the chemical smell was a deal breaker for me.
