How to Clean a Yoga Mat

Yoga mats get covered with sweat, so they should be cleaned frequently. While some mats can be cleaned in the washing machine, while others need to be cleaned by hand; be sure to check the label on your mat to know which kind you have. For hand-cleaning mats, you can make your own cleaning solution to spray and clean your mat.

Part 1


Make a cleaning solution. Make a solution of 50 percent water and 50 percent white vinegar. Put it in a spray bottle. Add a couple of drops of tea tree oil if desired.


Spray the yoga mat. Spray the yoga mat with the vinegar solution. Clean it with a paper towel or soft cloth.


Dry the mat. Dry the mat off or leave it out to dry. If you want, carry a spray bottle of the solution to your yoga class so you can clean off your yoga mat after every use.
