Spray Bottle Method:
If your mat is lightly soiled, using a spray bottle or damp cloth, wet the soiled surface with water then wipe it dry with a clean terry cloth towel.
Bath Tub Method:
Laundry Machine Method:
I wash mine every month or so, in the washing machine with a small amount
of soap. There is a small risk of the mat getting stuck in the turbine, so
be close by if any strange noises occur.
If you are not comfortable, do step A or B
Hang to Dry.
Showing up to class with a wet mat is like doing yoga on a backyard banana
slide and isn't much fun.
How about New Mats that feel slippery?:
It is not uncommon for mats to be slippery when you first buy them. You can wash them in light soap or usually after being slippery for 10-15 sessions, they will become truly sticky.
