00:00:00,000 –> 00:00:02,790
hello my friends today on yoga mat week

2
00:00:02,790 –> 00:00:05,130
I’m giving you tips on how to clean your

3
00:00:05,130 –> 00:00:06,810
yoga mat so a bunch of you have written

4
00:00:06,810 –> 00:00:08,460
into me through Facebook and asked about

5
00:00:08,460 –> 00:00:11,219
this and unfortunately I do not have a

6
00:00:11,219 –> 00:00:13,380
universal answer one of the big things

7
00:00:13,380 –> 00:00:16,289
that I learned doing this whole yoga mat

8
00:00:16,289 –> 00:00:18,240
week thing and really researching all

9
00:00:18,240 –> 00:00:19,619
these mats and what they’re made of is

10
00:00:19,619 –> 00:00:22,170
that all of these mats are really unique

11
00:00:22,170 –> 00:00:23,609
so they’re all going to need to be

12
00:00:23,609 –> 00:00:26,099
cleaned in different ways you have open

13
00:00:26,099 –> 00:00:27,480
cell construction and closed cell

14
00:00:27,480 –> 00:00:28,980
construction mats if you missed that

15
00:00:28,980 –> 00:00:31,949
video but let me dive in to some tips

16
00:00:31,949 –> 00:00:34,020
you definitely want to clean your mat

17
00:00:34,020 –> 00:00:36,840
once a week let’s take a look at Jade

18
00:00:36,840 –> 00:00:38,610
for example because they’re a pretty

19
00:00:38,610 –> 00:00:40,469
common brand it says to hand wash with

20
00:00:40,469 –> 00:00:42,300
cold water and mild soap so another

21
00:00:42,300 –> 00:00:44,070
universal tip is you don’t want to use a

22
00:00:44,070 –> 00:00:46,260
lot of soap okay some mats absolutely no

23
00:00:46,260 –> 00:00:47,879
soap in here for example jade is saying

24
00:00:47,879 –> 00:00:50,250
mild soap so here it’s saying you know

25
00:00:50,250 –> 00:00:51,660
hand wash with cold water be pretty

26
00:00:51,660 –> 00:00:52,110
gentle

27
00:00:52,110 –> 00:00:54,360
for example the Yogo travel mat we

28
00:00:54,360 –> 00:00:56,550
looked at you can literally just spray

29
00:00:56,550 –> 00:00:58,469
that thing down in the shower and then

30
00:00:58,469 –> 00:01:00,059
it has those little loops where you can

31
00:01:00,059 –> 00:01:02,309
just hang it to dry in the shower if we

32
00:01:02,309 –> 00:01:04,019
look at Manduca and I’m going to read

33
00:01:04,019 –> 00:01:05,459
their little thing that comes around

34
00:01:05,459 –> 00:01:07,229
your mats when you get your mat and they

35
00:01:07,229 –> 00:01:08,700
have these like instructions wrapped

36
00:01:08,700 –> 00:01:10,439
around them really read those and look

37
00:01:10,439 –> 00:01:11,610
at them or take a picture with your

38
00:01:11,610 –> 00:01:13,080
phone so you know how to care for your

39
00:01:13,080 –> 00:01:15,360
mat okay this one says wipe it down with

40
00:01:15,360 –> 00:01:17,490
the gentle household cleaner or Manduca

41
00:01:17,490 –> 00:01:19,680
mat wash and then air dry in the

42
00:01:19,680 –> 00:01:22,470
sunshine our pro mats love the sunshine

43
00:01:22,470 –> 00:01:24,119
refrain from putting your mat in the

44
00:01:24,119 –> 00:01:25,049
washing machine

45
00:01:25,049 –> 00:01:27,210
okay other people I read on forums say

46
00:01:27,210 –> 00:01:28,409
that they put their mat in the washing

47
00:01:28,409 –> 00:01:30,000
machine and it works out great

48
00:01:30,000 –> 00:01:31,860
man Duke is clearly saying not to do

49
00:01:31,860 –> 00:01:33,450
that man Duke is also saying their mats

50
00:01:33,450 –> 00:01:36,210
love the sunshine Jade mats you don’t

51
00:01:36,210 –> 00:01:38,520
want to leave them out in the Sun so you

52
00:01:38,520 –> 00:01:39,900
know you really want to read the

53
00:01:39,900 –> 00:01:41,909
instructions again for your specific mat

54
00:01:41,909 –> 00:01:43,770
and I don’t think I even realize until

55
00:01:43,770 –> 00:01:46,439
taking on this project how different

56
00:01:46,439 –> 00:01:47,909
these mats really were in terms of

57
00:01:47,909 –> 00:01:50,189
materials now some bonus tips for you if

58
00:01:50,189 –> 00:01:51,390
you do want to just make a general

59
00:01:51,390 –> 00:01:53,850
cleaner that is probably safe for almost

60
00:01:53,850 –> 00:01:56,579
all mats you can make your own just have

61
00:01:56,579 –> 00:02:00,210
it be 50% water and 50% vinegar kind of

62
00:02:00,210 –> 00:02:01,799
that’s going to work pretty well but my

63
00:02:01,799 –> 00:02:04,259
favorite thing to use to clean mats is

64
00:02:04,259 –> 00:02:07,979
these yogini cleany towelettes and I

65
00:02:07,979 –> 00:02:10,410
have 200 of them yet I could not find

66
00:02:10,410 –> 00:02:12,420
one in my house to film with this video

67
00:02:12,420 –> 00:02:13,080
but here’s

68
00:02:13,080 –> 00:02:14,970
picture of it right here I love these

69
00:02:14,970 –> 00:02:16,950
because they come in lavender and

70
00:02:16,950 –> 00:02:19,560
lemongrass they’re pretty much safe to

71
00:02:19,560 –> 00:02:21,780
clean any Matt now that I know there’s

72
00:02:21,780 –> 00:02:22,950
so many different kinds I don’t want to

73
00:02:22,950 –> 00:02:24,900
make blanket statements but really

74
00:02:24,900 –> 00:02:26,310
gentle they have essential oil and

75
00:02:26,310 –> 00:02:27,960
basically what I love about them is you

76
00:02:27,960 –> 00:02:30,600
can use them to clean your own body so I

77
00:02:30,600 –> 00:02:32,160
carry them around in my backpack so

78
00:02:32,160 –> 00:02:34,440
after I teach a class or between classes

79
00:02:34,440 –> 00:02:36,570
if I’m going out to chai or tea or

80
00:02:36,570 –> 00:02:38,100
whatever I can just kind of freshen up

81
00:02:38,100 –> 00:02:42,570
but I can also use that same um wipe not

82
00:02:42,570 –> 00:02:43,980
necessarily the same white but the same

83
00:02:43,980 –> 00:02:46,140
brand and everything I you know I have

84
00:02:46,140 –> 00:02:48,180
five in my bag at any given time to

85
00:02:48,180 –> 00:02:50,010
clean my mat and the reason I really

86
00:02:50,010 –> 00:02:52,860
love cleaning my mat with wipes as

87
00:02:52,860 –> 00:02:55,020
opposed to just a spray is that I can

88
00:02:55,020 –> 00:02:57,600
really see the dirt coming off of it you

89
00:02:57,600 –> 00:02:59,160
know because it’s a disposable wipe and

90
00:02:59,160 –> 00:03:01,050
you’ll see how dirty your mat was and I

91
00:03:01,050 –> 00:03:02,850
don’t know that’s just satisfying to me

92
00:03:02,850 –> 00:03:05,100
to really see kind of the grime coming

93
00:03:05,100 –> 00:03:07,140
off so whether you make your own little

94
00:03:07,140 –> 00:03:09,360
solution with the the bottle or you

95
00:03:09,360 –> 00:03:11,910
invest in the yogini clean ease and use

96
00:03:11,910 –> 00:03:13,620
them to clean your mat and your body

97
00:03:13,620 –> 00:03:15,750
when you’re on a rush and on the go

98
00:03:15,750 –> 00:03:17,970
