Homemade All-Natural Yoga Mat Cleaner



Awhile back I posted an organic nontoxic mat cleaner for when you don't have time to soak & scrub your mat in the tub. I recently removed the post, because sadly (after a decent amount of use) it left my mat slippery. Not good for a yogi that needs a sticky mat. ;) 

Anyway, since then I've been using a homemade all-natural yoga mat cleaner I found on-line. I'm excited to say the homemade cleaner is ommmmtastic and doesn't leave me sliding into another another asana. 

Here's what I used...
  • 1 Cup White Vinegar
  • 3 Cups Filtered Water
  • 1 Tsp Tea Tree Oil
  • 10-30 Drops Essential Oil (lavender, lemongrass, or peppermint are some great options)

There are a variety of yoga mats out there and of course, they all have slightly different ways to clean them. To ensure what your using won't ruin the mat, visit the company's website or Facebook page and see what they recommend. They may try and sway you to use their cleaner, but at least you'll know what not to use on your mat.

Have a great day yogi's!
