The Best Way to Clean Your Yoga Mat

Yoga mats don’t need daily cleaning, but a weekly wipe-down will help reduce odor and bacteria. If you increase the frequency of your workouts, wash your mat more often.

Spray the mat with a mixture of about 2 cups warm water and a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid.

Wipe the mat down with a clean, wet sponge or soft cloth. Repeat if any soap remains.

Lay a dry towel on the mat. Roll them together to squeeze water out. Hang the mat over a shower rod to dry.
