How do I get the smell out of my yoga mat?
Some practitioners swear by a simple 50/50 mixture of water and apple cider vinegar. You can leave it at that or, to boost its antimicrobial, anti-fungal properties, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Put it in a spray bottle and spritz away!
How do you get mold out of gym mats?
To remove dirt and debris, the mats can be swept or gently vacuumed. Then, simply use gentle soap solutions and water to dampen a rag to wipe down the mats. A gentle scrub should suffice, as you never want to use abrasive cleaners, brushes, or techniques.
How do you disinfect a yoga mat?
The most basic way to clean your mat is with diluted dish soap and water. Create a solution made with two cups of water to every four drops of dish soap. Be careful not to use too much soap! Doing so can leave a slippery residue on your mat, making future yoga practices dangerous.

How do you disinfect a gym mat?

Can I use Clorox wipes on my yoga mat?
If you do opt to disinfect your yoga mat with Clorox wipes, Stiff says you should plan to clean it after you’ve waited long enough for their chemicals to kill germs. “After waiting the appropriate time, you absolutely must rinse your mat off and wipe it clean to remove as much of the product as possible.”

Vinegar and Water: For a quick clean, create a 50/50 mixture of water and apple cider vinegar to wipe down your yoga mat. Let it hang dry in a well-ventilated room or outside in the fresh air.
Can I clean my yoga mat with alcohol?
In a spray bottle, combine one part rubbing alcohol, 2 parts water, and a few drops of essential oil (I like lavender or lemongrass). Shake well and spray generously on your mat. Wipe vigorously with a dry cloth or a handful of paper towels until the moisture is mostly wiped up.
