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.
What can I use to clean my yoga mat?
Mix warm water and a few drops of dish soap in a bowl. (Be careful not to add too much soap.) 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.
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.
How do you clean a suede yoga mat?
Use a gentle, bleach-free household disinfectant wipe to wipe down your mat after each use to kill germs and bacteria. Allow your mat to air dry before rolling it back up.
Can I use Lysol wipes on my yoga mat?
If you want to thoroughly clean your mat, use water and mild soap detergent to wash all the dirt, sweat, oils, and bacteria stuck in it. If you have a closed-cell yoga mat such as PVC yoga mats, you can keep it clean by using Lysol wipes.
Can I use vinegar to clean my yoga mat?
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 in the washing machine?
How to Deep Clean a Yoga Mat. Some mats are hand-washable in cold water and mild soap, while others can be cleaned in the washing machine on a cold, gentle cycle. Make sure they are well-rinsed and always air dry a yoga mat — never put it in the dryer.
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.
What is the best homemade cleaning solution?

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.
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.
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.
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.
