Happy Thursday Yogis!! We hope your July is off to a good start. If you live in the North County San Diego area and we haven’t seen you around the studio please Join Us! You can sign up for classes HERE. Today, we want to discuss How To Care For Your Yoga Mat.
How To Care For Your Yoga Mat
First thing, read the care instructions provided with your yoga mat. Each mat has different tips for cleaning their product.
If you practice in the heat, the key to keeping your mat clean is to use a towel during your practice. Make sure that you clean your towels in warm water or with a sanitizing cleaner after each use.
When you are done, wipe down your mat and use a natural cleaner. Essential oil blends are a great idea! Or a simple vinegar and water blend will work.
Let your mat air dry before you roll it back up.
Short on time? Take your mat home and clean once a week. Wipe down with your cleaner of choice and let air dry for a day.
These tips will help to prevent germs and anything yucky from growing on your mat.
