to care for your yoga mat
If your yoga mat is lightly soiled, using a spray bottle
or damp cloth, wet the soiled surface with water, then wipe
it dry with a clean terry cloth towel. For heavier soiling,
wash your yoga mat in a tub of cool water and mild detergent.
Use only a small amount of soap because any residue may cause
your yoga mat to become slippery when it becomes wet with
perspiration. Rub the yoga mat with a soft cloth or let it
soak. Rinse thoroughly. To quicken the mat's drying time,
lay it on a dry towel and roll the mat and towel together
like a sleeping bag. Step on the rolled up mat and towel to
squeeze most of the water from your mat into the towel. Unroll
your mat and hang it to air dry. With use and washing your
yoga mat should become softer and stickier.
