Yoga is a sacred practise, which is why it's important to maintain a clean and fresh yoga space, so that when you are practising you can enjoy being in your mat without being distracted.
Depending on your type of yoga mat there are different ways that you can keep them clean.
But cleaning your mat naturally is always the best way.
Not only is cleaning your yoga mat naturally better for your mat, it's also kinder to the environment. And who wouldn't want to be loving towards our mother earth?
Depending on which Wuufly yoga mat you have there are different ways to clean to protect them.
What you will need to clean:
Spray bottle (any size)
3 cups water
1 cup distilled apple cider vinegar or witch baking soda or eco dish liquid
To clean your Wuufly Pro, Wuufly Studio or Wuufly Travel mat we recommend mixing a potion of water and apple cider vinegar, baking soda or a drop of dish liquid and add to a spray bottle to wipe your mat.
It's really important that you dry you clean and dry your mat after each use to maintain the quality of the mat, you could do this by using a moist towel to wipe it down and then let the mat to hang and dry to avoid any moisture build up. Then use our recipe above for a deep clean.
With our Studio or Travel mats you could even go one step further and add a few drops of your favourite essential oils! We love lavender, especially for practising yin yoga!
For Wuufly Pro mats we wouldn't advise using any essential oils on the mat, as this could decrease the stickiness of the mat. But that doesn't mean you can't treat yourself to a few drops on your wrist to enrich your senses during your yoga practise!
One of the perks of using a Wuufly Studio or Travel mat is that we use naturally anti-microbial material so you don't need to worry about fungus growing on your mat if it gets sweaty. Meaning you can practise Power or Rocket yoga until your hearts content.
To protect your mat when you're not using it, wrap it up in a yoga bag with the top side facing out and store it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
