Homemade Yoga Mat Cleaner

We moved 3 weeks ago into a new place. All my previous homes have had carpet, and now suddenly I’m living in the world of laminate with all it’s visible dust, loud falls, and cold feet. I do like it overall, but one concern I had was with exercising. Especially since I am now in a condo building with other people living beneath me, I didn’t want to be thumping away over someone’s head

I bought a thick yoga mat to remedy this situation, and after sweating and having my feet all over it on the first day, I realized I would need something to clean it with. I could buy a yoga mat cleaner for $8-15 or I could make my own with cheap ingredients I already owned.

Natural Yoga Mat Cleaner
Recipe from Oh She Glows

3 c water
1 c white vinegar
1 tsp tea tree oil
10 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

Combine all ingredients into a spray bottle.
Shake before each use.

Spray mat with solution and wipe down with a damp cloth. Repeat on the other side. Allow to air dry before rolling up.

It’s a good idea to check with your brand of yoga mat to see how and with what it can be washed. I didn’t, but I like to live dangerously.
