(DIY) Yoga Mat Cleaner
So my cleaner was...
3 Cups Water
1 tsp baking soda ( I added to combat the smell)
Several drops eucalyptus oil ( deodorant, antiseptic, antibacterial properties among others and I find the smell refreshing)
Several drops lavender oil (anti-fungal properties and I like the smell)
I just mixed everything in a bowl and poured it over the mat in the bathtub, gave it a good scrub and realized... I need a new mat. When actually cleaned I found that my poor mat is missing chunks (I think the cats might have thought it was for scratching) and is really truly stained. It smells better though, so that's something. I hung it outside to dry but I think it's going to get a second rinsing since the sky is darkening up and looks like rain. I'll probably ask for a new one for Christmas, hopefully this one will hang on for that long. I put some in a small spray bottle to keep handy for after workouts, to wipe down the mat so it doesn't get so grody.
