Make your own Yoga Mat Cleaner

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

This post comes by special request from my sweet friend who is due to give birth any day now. Said sweet friend has been doing a lot of yoga throughout her pregnancy, and is looking for a non-toxic, make-it-yourself way to clean her yoga mat. I get it. A really good yoga session with a deeply satisfying sweaty savasana makes for a slightly stinky yoga mat. Easy fix! I used to spray my own yoga mat with a mixture of white vinegar, water, and tea trea oil, but the smell of the vinegar would linger for weeks afterwards. This recipe I've created still contains powerful anti-fungal properties but leaves a lovely fresh scent afterwards.

Yoga Mat Cleaner

Combine all ingredients in a glass spray bottle and store in a dark area when not in use.

To use, spray all over the surface of your yoga mat. Take a damp cloth and wipe away before drying with a towel. Repeat on the other side, and let air dry for 10 minutes. I like to hang it over a door or shower curtain overnight.
