Yoga and Pilates mats lay on the dirty floor. When class is concluded, everyone rolls their mat and exits the studio, essentially wrapping bacteria and dirt into the mat they will use for the next class. I have two tricks to keep my mat clean. The first is an easy-to-make, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal spray. It cleans my mats and makes them smell great :
Mix the following ingredients in a small spray bottle:
40 drops lavender oil
30 drops tea tree oil
1/4 cu witch hazel (available in the drug store)
1 cu warm water (preferably filtered or spring water)
Just spray this mixture onto your mat, periodically, give it a wipe and dry.
My second tip is this: I layer two yoga mats at the gym. When practice is over, I roll the top mat first, and then roll the bottom mat around it. This way, the mat I practice on never touches the floor, thus it stays clean longer. If I were to roll both mats together, I would essentially be rolling the floor and all its bacteria onto the mat that touches my skin.
