Alternatives to horse stall mats?

I hear the horse stall mats are popular choices, but I also hear that they smell awful. Are there good alternatives that do not smell, and if not, is there a way to remove the smell that doesn't require "washing it outside"? I live in an urban area where this isn't exactly feasible for me.
