How To Clean And Maintain Your Yoga Mat?

A yoga mat is necessary, it can make you feel comfortable when doing yoga or other sports. However, sweat, dust, dirt, body oils, and other debris will accumulate on the mats you often use, causing your mats to slide, which is difficult for you to practice yoga.

1. Why does your yoga mat need cleaning and maintenance?

Regular cleaning and maintenance of your mats are essential. Obviously, unclean yoga mats can cause skin problems: fungi and bacteria can cause athlete's foot, plantar warts, staphylococcal infections, and ringworm. They often appear on yoga mats because they thrive in warm, dark, and humid environments. How terrible it is!

Doing simple maintenance of your yoga mat after each use can help extend its life and reduce how long it takes to clean the mat thoroughly. Every time you open the yoga mat, the mat will be like a fresh lotus leaf and bring you the most natural and pure world. When you go to a yoga studio or practice at home, you will get a more pleasant mood because of the spotless mats, and practicing yoga will be more comfortable.

2. How to clean your yoga mat with different materials?

Washing your yoga mat regularly should be one of the good habits you should develop while practicing yoga. You should pay attention to its hygiene and keep your mats in a healthy and fresh state. However, if the cleaning method is improper, it will damage your yoga mat and shorten its service life.

The suede yoga mat is made of high-end soft and absorbent suede. It can soak moisture and sweat. The absorbent suede yoga mat is designed to be the ultimate yoga companion.

Before use, it is a good choice to practice after spraying water on the surface (the characteristic of suede leather is: the more sweaty hands and feet, the better the grip on the mat).

What do you need:

Diluted Yoga Mat Cleaner Spray


Cleaning methods:

Daily cleaning: Wipe clean with a damp towel, dry thoroughly in a cool place, avoid direct sunlight.

Partial cleaning: Use yoga mat cleaner spray and a small towel to clean the footpad, then wipe it twice with a wet towel, and dry it completely in a cool place to avoid direct sunlight.

Deep cleaning: Fill the bathtub with cold water and add washing powder. (The less washing powder the better the effect, because any residue will make the yoga mat slippery in the future) Then wipe the mat with a damp cloth and rinse. Finally, use a dry towel to absorb the excess water and dry it completely in a cool place, avoiding direct sunlight.


We do not recommend painting: it will damage the suede and affect the slip resistance.

Never put your yoga mat in the washing machine: because the mat is a compound of suede and rubber, machine washing will destroy the composite surface, so the quality of your mat will decrease significantly, making it impossible to practice on the mat because It is too slippery.

Be sure to avoid exposure to the sun: after exposure to the sun, the material has undergone denaturation and softening, so it will affect normal daily use to a certain extent.
