Cleaning your yoga mat is a necessity!
Dirt, oils, and sweat can quickly degrade the quality of your mat and make it more difficult to practice. Performing simple maintenance tasks on your yoga mat after each use can help extend its life. An untreated yoga mat has 100,000 bacteria per cubic centimeter! Your mat is exposed to the studio floor, sweat, airborne germs, etc. Don’t expose your feet, hands, face and overall body to a dirty, germ covered mat.
