I formulated this one just for a special request from a yoga studio in North Carolina, looking for a natural and affordable alternative to yoga mat cleaners. I received amazing feedback, so I am offering them up here. Simply spray your yoga mat liberally with this gentle cleanser, and wipe with a soft cotton cloth. This formula is naturally disinfectant, and the essential oils of lavender and tea tree are well-known for their microbe-inhibiting properties. And besides, it smells great!
This cleanser is also great for other workout equipment and other materials used by many people. Try it for daycare nap mats or changing pads. Shared phones, door knobs, and computer stations… Simply spray on and wipe off – use for any surface or material you need to disinfect and clean between uses. You will receive one 4-ounce blue cobalt spray bottle containing my special formula for quick disinfecting of a multitude of surfaces.
You may have heard that you cannot use cleaning products with alcohol in them to clean your yoga mat. This product contains a tiny amount of isopropyl alcohol for its disinfectant properties, but it is a very volatile compound, and will evaporate very quickly. It will not be in contact with your yoga mat at anywhere near the concentration needed to cause damage to the material. Other “natural” cleaners may claim to contain no alcohol, but beware! A few yoga mat cleaners claim to be 100% natural, made with only witch hazel and essential oils. Witch hazel is distilled using alcohol, so any product containing witch hazel but claiming to be alcohol-free and 100% natural is misleading. I believe in full disclosure of all ingredients, so if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I can also make a special batch up just for you if you would prefer I leave the alcohol out.
