Cleaners for yoga mats
Yoga mat cleaners
To maintain the hygiene and long-lasting quality of your yoga mat, the yoga mat needs to be cleaned properly. The cleaning regime depends on the style of yoga and the degree of intensity (eg hot yoga - more sweating), the material of the mat (rubber, cork, artificial materials) and the frequency of cleaning. For easy cleansing after exercise, organic cleansers based on essential oils and vinegar are available. For occasional deep cleansing, we recommend a 'bath' for a yoga mat with a more intense but non-aggressive cleanser. We especially recommend it for yoga mats that have open cells. After each use and cleansing, the yoga mat should be dried (wiped with a cloth, left spread), but not exposed to strong heat sources (sun, heaters).
Yoga mats made of natural rubber need special care. Rubber is a natural material, a "living" material. External factors further affect such yoga mats. Therefore, caring for them is even more important. Cleaners ensure rubber flexibility and good adhesion.
Cork yoga mats are very durable and need minimal care. Cork is a natural material and has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. In case of very frequent use, regular cleaning (once a week) is recommended. Clean the mat with cold water and a gentle, non-aggressive detergent. Reyoga cleanser is also suitable.
For yoga mats with open cells, which are intended primarily for high-intensity exercises with a lot of sweating - for example, hot yoga, Manduka Everyday cleanser is used.
