Sometimes even the most beautiful yoga mats get dirty. It's true. Whether you're doing yoga, or POP Pilates, or even PIIT (on second thought, especially PIIT), your mat probably gets nice and sweaty on a daily basis. Don't worry! This quick and easy DIY yoga mat cleaning spray will have your mat feeling & smelling fresh in no time!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

Easy, right?! All you have to do is fill the spray bottle 3/4 the way with water and add equal parts of each essential oil- five to six drops each should do the trick! We chose lavender because the scent is super calming and relaxing- the perfect way to unwind from a workout!- but feel free to use any essential oil that has antibacterial properties! Fun Fact: Did you know tea tree oil can be used to can be used to treat athletes foot? We're starting to think essential oils are actually magical.

After you mix the solution, just gently spray a couple of inches over your yoga mat and wipe or pat dry with a clean towel. Fun Fact: If you choose a white towel, it will ensure the color from the towel doesn't bleed into your precious mat!

Need more tips on how to clean your mat? Let's say you go hard with some plank jacks and your shoes decide to leave a nice dirt mark.  All you need to do is wipe the mark away with a dry towel and it disappears like literal magic.  If you spill a drink, like Gatorade, on it?  Immediately pat the excess liquid off with a clean, dry towel.  Mix one teaspoon of liquid laundry detergent to one cup of water and use another towel to wipe the detergent mixture onto the stain.  Once it dries, your mat will look good as new!  You can check all this out in Blogilates' latest video below!

Don't have a yoga mat to clean? Our brand new Luxury Suede Yoga Mats are here- and they're vegan! Each mat is a super comfy 5mm thick.

They come in four gorgeous designs: Diamond Sky, Boho Bliss, Flourishing Foliage & Modern Jungle AND they're anti-slip, so the sweatier you get, the grippier the mat gets!

During my training, Hue Ta let me stand on her mat! I was completely in awe of how velvety and soft her mat was. I was expecting a regular old yoga mat feel but the mats are so much more! Cassie, whatever wizardry you are employing to make your mats so unbelievable luxurious, keep doing it! All the designs are amazing, but Diamond Sky, Modern jungle and the Pop logo mats are my favorite designs.

OMG the Boho Bliss is by far the PRETTIEST yoga mat I have ever seen!!!! And I love how the back is my favorite color, orange!! I feel like not many designers use orange in their designs, which is such a shame. Talk about an underrated color

I love all of them in their own way because they’re all so beautiful, but I seriously dig the Boho Bliss mat. I love cacti and succulents! They’re strong and resilient which is something that I believe we all (should) connect with.
