    Promising review: "This is a great mat! It's sturdy and the size is perfect. It's also great if you just want people to go away if they come to your door. You don't even have to talk to them—the rug lets them know that you aren't interested in what they have to say. The only problem is that your family might start ignoring the instructions on the rug so I recommend buying a couple of them and placing them around different parts of the house so that they get the message." —Erica H.
