I had ordered a huge one earlier this month and it just came wendsay. Since then I've kept it outside to try and air out and it still has that strong rubber smell. Reason why this rubber smell is such a problem is because I have asthma, so it's killing my lungs. I have tried to let it get fresh air for about 3 days now outside. and it isn't working. What are other ways to make that scent die down?
The size of the mouse pad is 0.12 x 35.43 x 15.74 in

Washing shoes in hot water and soap gets rid of the rubber smell, but on a mouse mat it might ruin it, depends what the surface is made of.
It's basically the chemicals that are still on the mat causing the smell.1

Generally, you can't get rid of the smell only mask it until it dies down naturally. I've heard that coffee or shampoo can mask it for a while, it'd be worth a try.2
