Yoga has been such a great part of my life for the past, I don’t know, 7 years. One thing I struggled to find that I liked was a cleaner for my yoga mat. I’ve tried a bunch of store bought variations, but they either don’t work or leave a strange smell on the mat. I’m not a big fan of that. It was time I tried to make my own and I’m pretty happy with the results.
The cleaner only includes 2-3 ingredients and you might have them already. I chose to mix two oils together, but you can use one if you prefer. Find a scent you like and go with it.
Yoga Mat Cleaner Supplies
- spray bottle
- witch hazel
- essential oils (lemongrass, peppermint)
Step 1: add your essential oils
Add 4 drops of each essential oil and shake the bottle to mix them together.
Step 2: use Witch Hazel as your base
Fill your spray bottle with Witch Hazel and shake to mix with the oils.
You’re done already! Spray down your yoga mat and wipe it down with a soft cloth to get it clean. Give it some time to dry and you’ll be ready to start your practice in no time (without having to worry about sweat on your mat).
I’d love to hear what you think! Do you like the oils I chose? What would you choose? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
