d1c5e861a2e49ce68c1241dfa481d585At Breathe, we support your use of natural, essential oils for ALL of your cleaning needs! We stock Peggy's special hand-mixed mat cleaner for sale in our retail corner, as well as Martha's tiny droppers of lavendar oils and hand-sanitizers. Not only can you keep your family and pets safe from caustic cleaners by using essential oils to clean your home, but we ALSO vouch that the best way to keep your mat clean and sticky is to use an all-natural mat cleaner.

Here are two easy and inexpensive recipes and some instructions:

Recipe #1:

    • Three drops of tea tree oil
    • Two drops of peppermint oil
    • Two drops of lavender oil
    • Distilled water

Recipe #2
This is for a stronger antibacterial/antifungal spray.

    • 1 part warm water with 3 parts white vinegar
    • Add 8-12 drops of essential oils like eucalyptus, lemongrass, lavender, mint, or tea tree oil

For both solutions, mix thoroughly and place the solution in a spray bottle.

Spray Cleaning Instructions:

1. Spray your yoga mat cleaner liberally over the surface of your mat. If your mat seems especially dirty, let the cleanser sit and soak in a bit before cleaning it off.

2. Wipe the yoga mat with a wet cloth or sponge. When the cleanser has been thoroughly removed, rub the mat down with a soft dry cloth, like a small towel or washcloth. Now repeat on the other side.

3. Allow your mat to air dry, which should take only about 5 to 10 minutes. If it takes longer than this, try rubbing your mat down more with the towel to remove the excess water and speed up the drying time.
