How do you deodorize a yoga mat?

Can I put yoga mat in dryer?
Never put your yoga mat in the dryer. Once the mat is dry, roll it up tightly and store in a place with good ventilation. Open the mat every few weeks, even if you’re not using it, to allow air circulation. If your mat starts peeling, or if pieces of it are sticking to your workout clothes, it’s time to buy a new mat.
How do you store your exercise mat?
Storage devices (such as a mat cart or a mat rack) keep your mats off the floor, keeping them neater, out of the way of passing feet, and safe from damage.
How do you hang a yoga mat dry?
To dry your mat, roll it up and squeeze out any excess water. Rub it dry with a terry cloth towel and then hang it to air dry. If your mat is very absorbent, lay it open on a dry towel. Roll the mat and towel together.
How do you use a yoga mat string?
You should have a stretch of yoga strap with small loops at either end, both just about big enough to slip over the rolled ends of your mat. Slip one loop over one end of your mat and snug it tight. Slip the other loop over the other end of the mat and snug it tight. Done.
Are expensive yoga mats worth it?
You’ll save money: When buying a pricier mat, it costs more upfront, but it’s often because they are thicker, durable, and made from better-quality materials. A cheaper mat, in comparison, can begin to flake after less than a year’s use. In the end, you’ll actually save money since you avoid any replacement fees.
Is a thick or thin yoga mat better?
Thinner mats can help increase stability for styles of yoga with more active poses or balanced, focused poses. Look for mats with textured surfaces to maintain better grip when the poses get more strenuous. Thicker mats provide extra cushioning and are best for more therapeutic practices.
Is a 6mm yoga mat good?
If you want more comfort or you practice yoga on uneven or hard surfaces then you may prefer a thicker mat like a 6 or 8mm. The trade-off with a thicker mat is they don’t offer as much stability—but those of you who like more of a challenge, this can actually be a good thing.
