Slush Mat Odor
 
I put slush mats in my Jeep shortly after purchasing it this past February and have had no problems. Yesterday I hosed the mats off, let them dry and now they have a horrible smell!:( I scrubbed them with detergent, but the smell is still there. Any thoughts?

Thanks

If the aroma is due to mold, spray them down with a bleach solution and let it soak or a couple of minutes before hosing it off. Other than that, febreze could help.

I have the Mopar slush mats and cargo mat, and haven't noticed any smell from them, at least not yet.

The funny thing is, they didn't smell before I hosed them off. The only thing I can think of is that I hadn't used the hose in quite some time and maybe the water in the hose caused the smell. It's almost like a cat-urine type smell.

Do they all smell, or just one? Maybe a cat got to one of them while it was drying. ;)

By the way the title should have read "Slush Mat Odor"

Interesting, I just installed a set of the slush mats front and rear, as well as in the cargo area. No smell yet...doesn't make me want to wash them though!

Did you ever notice the smell when they got wet from your shoes?

So do you like them? Except for the smell?

Yes, I think they are the Mopar ones. I put them back in the car and I'm going to see if the odor dissipates.

Front and rear Mopar slush mats have been in for 2 weeks. This is their second winter. Mopar cargo mat is in 24/7/365. No smell from about 1 foot away. This is odd. Sorry, no suggestions.
