I love yoga. It’s become one of my favorite ways to relax my mind and body when I need it most. One thing that doesn’t relax my mind though– is thinking about all the nasty stuff that’s on my yoga mat, especially after an intense sweaty practice! Anyone who practices yoga knows that it doesn’t take long for your mat to build up dirt and grime. I mean, it’s on the floor every time you do a tree pose, a plank, or a downward-facing dog! Maybe your mat was in the trunk of your car or in your garage before using it at the studio. Dirt and bacteria are everywhere including what your own feet transfer to your yoga mat. Yuk! This DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner will help keep your mat clean and fresh.
