Did you know that airline seats and mobile phones carry less germs than your yoga mat?
Yep, in fact, yoga mats are crawling with bacteria, fungi, viruses and more. In other words, yuck!
While most of us are guilty of rolling up post-savasana, without a second thought (myself included), cleaning your mat regularly is not only important for hygiene, but it also helps prolong your mat’s life.
But if you’ve ever wondered just how to clean your mat—not to mention how often—you’re not alone.
Looking for a new yoga mat? We recommend Lululemon’s The Reversible Mat. This ultra-absorbent mat is designed to soak up sweat and wick away moisture so no matter how sweaty you get, you can always get a grip. It even incorporates an antimicrobial additive to help prevent bacteria, fungi and mold from taking hold of our mat – genius!
