Okay, wait! How can you focus on your flow when you’re practicing on a dirty mat? Looking down and wondering, “When was the last time I cleaned this thing?” Today we’re going to teach you how to make homemade yoga mat cleaner. It’s super easy to make and chances are you already have all of the ingredients at home.

You’ll need a spray bottle, distilled white vinegar, dish soap, some water, a wash cloth, and of course that dirty yoga mat, but we’re going to fix that. Take your spray bottle and add a small amount of white vinegar. Then, add a couple drops of dish soap too. Top off the mixture with water and swirl the bottle around to mix it all together.

Once your cleaning solution is ready to go, lay out your mat and spritz on the solution. Then, use the washcloth to wipe it down. You can repeat this on the other side too if you think it needs it. Once you’re done cleaning the mat, hang it over something to dry. You’ve now got yourself a nice clean yoga mat.
