Yes, it takes a couple of days. Wipe down with warm, soapy water and it helps.

I bought a small one and it took over a year for mine to stop smelling! Made me dizzy so I quit using it.

I just got one of these and it didn't have any odor. I would just let it air out for a while. :)

I almost bought one but had read on here about smelly mats and smelled it first! brought it to the sales gals attention and ended up getting a different kind!
