Now that we are all so busy with hygiene, you may have wondered how your yoga mat is doing. Whether you use it often or sometimes, it is nice if the yoga mat you lie on is clean. But what is the guideline now?

First consider how you feel after exercising. Have you been sweating and would you prefer to take a shower? Then it is actually smart to clean your yoga mat. If you have not sweated at all and if the exercise was not so intense, then once a week is sufficient.

How do you clean your yoga mat?

It doesn't have to be difficult. You can use a bacterial cleaning spray and spray it evenly over your yoga mat on both sides. If you do not have this, you can also make a mix of lukewarm water with a little detergent. Then wipe it over to make sure you've had every spot. It is best to let the mat dry in the sun for a while, which also kills all bacteria immediately.
