DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner

Ever get a wiff of that yoga mat you use for power,hot,bikram yoga after a sweaty class? Yea me too, its gross. Some studios offer a cleansing wipe to disenfect your mat after each class and some do not. In case you are ever in the situation here is a natural homemade recipe for a yoga map cleaner. Will leave your map smelling fresh and clean for your next class. What I like most is that if you put some of the solution into a small glass bottle and leave it in your yoga bag, you will never be without it when you need or want it.

1 cup white vinegar
3 cups filtered water
1 tsp tea tree oil
essential oil of your choice ( 10-30 drops depending on your preference); peppermint, lavender, and thyme are great choices

Place all ingredients into  glass spray bottle. These can be found at any health food store. Shake well. Spray down yoga mat, wipe down after allowing it to sit for a minute with a damp cloth. Then pat dry with a dry cloth. Let air dry. Happy yoga practicing!
