Helpful post at Eco Yogini with eco-friendly solutions for freshening up a dirty yoga mat. She shares a vinegar water spray recipe for daily use. Here it is:
In an old spray bottle…combine
- You could also add some lavendar or other essential oil that makes you happy.1 part vinegar,
- 3 parts water, and
- 10 drops of tea tree essential oil.
THANKS! I’ve been wondering what I could do for a DIY solution… but quite honestly too lazy to google it until I actually splurged on a new mat.
Good solution that I can do at my house. I have also put my mat in the washing machine a couple of times a year, just make sure if you do this that you air dry it or else your mat may not respond favorably to the heat. If you must use the dryer, use low heat.
This is great! I can now freshen my dirty yoga mat. Thank you for this!
