Just got a stall mat from a local feed store ($45)--super sturdy!!
...however, the rubber smell is overwelming in my workout room, so much so, i am tempted to return it
1. Does the smell dissipate over time?
2. Can i wash the smell away somehow?
3. Am i better off buying puzzle-piece gym mats?
>>this sucks because the mat is freakin awesome

I don't have the stall mats, but something I got from Jesup Gym (4'x6'x1/2", weigh about 70lbs each). They stunk to high heaven when I first unrolled them and put them down on the floor, but I think within a week they stopped stinking. I don't smell the rubber smell in that room at all any more.
If you want to hasten getting rid of the smell, make sure you have a fan going and some cross-ventilation to blow unstinky air in and stinky air out.
