Should I Sun my yoga mat?

How often should I clean my yoga mat?
Try to aim for at least once a month for general use, or once a week for regular use. The more you sweat the dirtier your yoga mat will become, and during the warmer weather sweating can be escalated. This may leave your mat feeling (and smelling) less than fresh.
Why do I keep slipping on my yoga mat?
In some cases, having an incorrect mat match can be the culprit. Depending on how much you sweat, you might need to use a towel or different variety of yoga mat to avoid sliding around. Mat towels can be very effective for those who are excessively sweaty or who practice hot yoga.
Why do you sprinkle salt on a yoga mat?
Give your yoga mat an exfoliating treatment! Try sprinkling your mat with a mixture of sea salt and warm water. Then, either wipe it down with a stiff-bristled brush or a cotton washcloth. This can help break down the initial layer, which will help you slip less and find stability in poses.
