You are in the peacock pose – you get “the whiff” – strong enough to knock you into an upright position. You check your yoga outfit. No, you did not forget it in the gym bag or washing machine. So what is it? You have an idea. You bend down and take a tentative sniff of the yoga mat…..
Sweat, dust, dirt and body oil can build up on your mat and cause it to become smelly and unhygienic.
Depending on how often you use the mat you may want to clean it on a daily basis but it should be cleaned at least every week, which will minimize odours and extend the life of your mat.
Spray the mat with Aquaint after every use and leave to dry naturally, or wipe dry with a clean cloth or tissue. As it does not contain alcohol or detergent, which can dry the mat out, your mat will last longer. It is a natural deodorizer and will combat body odours too!
