Yoga Mat Cleaner

on May 4, 2017

I’m trying to avoid quite so many harsh chemicals in my studio and after some research I decided to make my own yoga mat cleaner.

It was quite easy and smells nice. My recipe was

  • Three parts cooled boiled water
  • One part vodka (disinfectant)
  • Twenty-ish drops of tea tree oil

Add it all to a spray bottle (£3 from a hairdressers supply store) and shake.

It doesn’t smell of alcohol and I’ve got lavender oil at the studio that I might add to this to make it a bit more soft.
Tea tree oil is an anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and has many other good properties for cleaning.

It’s super easy to just spray it onto the mats, wipe it down and leave to dry. I cleaned my Bikram mat with it and considering that’s a mat I wash regularly I was slightly grossed out by how much dirt came off it.
