Under hood insulation?

Since my last coolant and fan explosion, my under hood sound deadening material stinks like ... you guessed it - coolant, once it warms up.

Anyone else pulled it off? I haven't had it on other cars. Do you have any compelling reasons to blow $143 on a new one? I could do better with the money. I did a little searching and some people seem convinced it's totally necessary, some seem to think it's not. I would like to hear from someone that has done it.

Its very easy to remove. It's held in place by plastic screws.

Take it out, hose it off with some soap, fabreeze it and you are good to go.

Washing it might have been too obvious, for some reason I didn't even think of that. Hot coolant smells terrible, so every time I finish a drive and the car smells like coolant I cry a little on the inside just in case it's waiting to explode again.
