The duration of the sun shining on our part of the earth has increased—as well as the outdoor temperature. This marks the perfect time to deep clean your yoga mat. I do this in one of two ways and sometimes both, as I deep clean it twice during the summer.
1-Take mat and a large bin (to fit mat into it) to a self-service car wash. Parking in the garage-like bay, secure mat into the bay’s floor mat holders (look for a row of 4), and power spray it from one end to the other with high-pressure soap. Then flip mat over and continue saturating it with soap. Finish by rinsing both sides with water (high-pressure rinse). When done, roll up mat and place in the large bin (since it will expel excess water). Upon arriving home, squeeze out more water from the mat, unroll, and hang to air dry. Takes about two days to dry completely.
2-Hang mat on clothesline and use a water hose to spray with water on both sides. Fill a bucket with warm water. Mix in Dawn detergent with a hint of Clorox Bleach. Stir with a brush and then scrub mat thoroughly on both sides. Finish by rinsing both sides of the mat with water. Leave mat on clothesline to air dry. Takes about two days to dry completely.
