To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wanted to try to make a snuffle mat for my dog with this. Basically, you would make a little rag rug that you could then hide kibbles or treats in, and they have to forage through the rug to find it. Unfortunately, this mesh smelled really bad, like it was stored with something rotten. I aired it out for a few days, thinking that the smell would dissipate, but it did not. I returned it because I would not feel comfortable having my dog eat food off of this. I didn't even want to make a rug out of it. My hands smelled awful just from handling it. I'm not super sensitive to smells, either. Most of the time I don't mind a slightly plasticky smell or a fresh-from-the-factory smell. This smelled like it was stored with rotten food or dead animals or something. Would not recommend.
This is a nice product with a huge exception that it smelled like rotten fish directly out of the package. I took it out and sprayed it down good with a hose, let it dry out, then sprayed with aerosol air freshener and let it dry again. The smell is gone and I will use it now but just a warning for anyone thinking of purchasing this particular mesh.
