Lloyd's Mats Stink (Black version)

Lloyd's Mats Stink (Black version)

But they look and work great. So...the natural question is, does anyone know how to remove the stink?

A quick google search leads me to believe the best bet is a Dawn and warm water wash 'n scrub, a sunbath, then febreeze or 303 spray. Fellow googlers need not reply. Before I roll out the full monte, does anyone have personal, recent experience getting the stink off the black Lloyd's Rubbertite mats? Thanks in advance!

I received mine two weeks before my 85 arrived. I left them out on my deck the whole time. Still a faint petroleum smell when it's been relly hot in the car but other than that they aired out nicely.

Alright. I'll buckle down for the gauntlet o' work. Shenanigans they didn't clean these bad boys before sending em out. Thanks for the response, Jtodtman.

I returned my lloyds all weather stinky mats. No questions asked, refunded money and allowed me to keep them, which I promptly put in my attic. No direct sunlight, but lot of heat, let them out gas all summer. I turned the refund around and bought carpeted Lloyd's versions, which not only don't stink, but look awesome.

The later versions of Lloyd's appear to be stinkless. I'm guessing some mfg error caused the problem.

I bought the Ultimats a couple months ago and they have had no odor whatsoever.

Based on what data I can find, the stink appears to apply only to the Rubbertite material and amongst the Rubbertite mats, only the black ones. Today, I wrestle the stank, gentlemen. They shall not pass back unto the car with their current character.

I have the rubbertite gray one for the cargo space and it made the car smell like a sewer. 6 weeks of sitting in the driveway, sun and rain, took care of most of it. My son complains from the back seat sometimes, but I honestly think it's really his feet as the two smells are very similar.
