Rated 2 out of 5 by ptree It is very smelly - like gasoline.
When I opened the towel, I was surprised it had such a chemical smell. I washed it again and the smell was still there. I have had it hanging in the garage for two weeks now and the smell seems to be dissipating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AZgirl Oh my gosh! The SMELL!
I wish I would have read the reviews before I purchased. It is TERRIBLE! I have washed it hung to dry, sprayed with lysol, sprayed it with essential oil sprays- everything I can think of. Just being in the same room with it will give you a headache. I am terrified I would clear the entire studio if I dare bring it to hot yoga. I have another grippy towel from Gaiam and it is perfect- It never had this problem. I am so disappointed by this product.

I wash this towel every time I do laundry, but I cannot get rid of the chemical smell. It's impossible to find a way around it. I can't use it in practice, because it gives me a brutal headache. I'd rather make my mat a slip n slide!

In order to get rid of the "new rubber" odor, I washed this and hung it to dry in my spare room with a fan. It took a couple of days, but the offending odor is gone. It grips wonderfully to my mat and helps to keep me from sliding around as I am typically prone to do.

The previous reviewer is entirely correct. I purchased this towel hoping I would have a different experience, but unfortunately this product is defective.
