How to Care for Your Yoga Mat

  • Spray your yoga mat with a solution of vinegar & water. You can add an essential oil such as lavender or eucalyptus for a pleasing scent.
  • Toss the mat in the washing machine for an easy fix. Wash the yoga mat in the washing machine using cold water with a mild detergent. Rinse off the soap with room temperature or lukewarm water after washing. Pay attention to the washing machine while you wash your yoga mat. Remove the yoga mat before the washing machine starts the spin cycle. Hang dry your yoga mat away from direct sunlight.
  • If your mat comes with specific cleaning instructions, be sure to follow them.
