How do you deep clean a Manduka yoga mat?
To clean a Manduka PRO™ mat, lightly scrub the mat with a soft brush, cloth or sponge using Manduka’s Yoga Mat Wash And Refresh. Please avoid using vinegar based cleaning solutions as they will dull any metallic and opalescent properties. Wipe clean with water and air dry in the sunshine.
Why is my Manduka mat so slippery?
These yoga mats are made of a closed-cell material that will not absorb any moisture or liquids. Perspiration, oils, lotions, etc will create a slippery layer on top of your mat causing you to slip. A Yoga Towel will absorb that moisture and allow you to practice safely and with more confidence.
What is in Manduka mat wash?
Manduka All-Purpose Mat Wash Ingredients: Water, certified organic essential oils, phosphate free chelating agent (aids in cleaning), and a vegetable oil-based surfactant that promotes better penetration by the mat wash solution to clean dirt.
How do you clean a suede yoga mat?

How do you sanitize a yoga mat?
To deep clean a closed-cell yoga mat:
- Lay your mat out on a flat surface.
- Mix warm water and a few drops of dish soap in a bowl.
- Dip the rag into the soapy water, then clean the mat from top to bottom, prioritizing dirty spots, using a circular motion.
- Wipe the mat clean with a towel.
- Air dry for at least 30 minutes.
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.”
Do I really need to salt my Manduka mat?
To break in a Manduka PRO™ mat, we recommend a simple salt bath, as outlined in our how-to video below.
Is a Manduka mat worth it?
Buy it if you’re ready to work. The Manduka PRO Yoga Mat, like yoga itself, is an exercise in patience and a labor of love. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’re willing to put in the time and effort to break it in, the PRO may be the last yoga mat you ever buy—and that’s definitely worth a $120 price tag.
How long do Manduka mats last?
The lifetime of the mat is approximately 10 years of regular use when loved and cared for. Should a PRO™ mat wear out past its useful life from regular use under normal conditions, we will replace the product.
How do you store Manduka mats?
To Store: Roll your Black Mat PRO with the top side (fabric-finish) facing outwards [Interestingly enough, the photo to this post that came from Manduka’s website has the mat rolled opposite of this]. This keeps the corners of the mat flat when practicing.
How do you clean a yoga mat naturally?
- Mix vinegar or witch hazel with water at a 1-to-4 ratio in your spray bottle.
