How to clean and care for your One Happy Yogi mat?
We hope you love your One Happy Yogi mat as much as we do!
We want you to get the most out of your mat and use it for a long time, so here is how to take care of it:
1. Clean it
Wipe with warm water using a soft non-abrasive cloth or sponge. If required, add a very small amount of mild detergent or lemon juice to the water. Never use harsh chemical cleaning products on your mat. We recommend you clean your mat every 5-10 uses but if you regularly practise in sweaty conditions you may wish to clean your mat more frequently. Never soak or submerge in water, and do not put in a washing machine! Regular cleaning will help preserve the grippy surface by removing oils and slippery substances.
2. Dry it
Always ensure your mat is dry before rolling up. Obviously this may not be possible after a sweaty yoga class so in this scenario simply roll your mat, head home and unroll your mat to allow it to dry. After cleaning or a particularly sweaty practise, dry the surface with a clean non-abrasive towel and leave to completely air dry before rolling. And never tumble dry!
3. Store it
Your mat is designed to be rolled with the coloured design side on the outside between uses. This is important as it will increase the life of your mat and ensures it will lay nice and flat each time you use it.
4. Protect it
Your mat is made from biodegradable materials which is great for the environment. However, prolonged exposure to the sun could reduce the lifespan of your mat. It most definitely can be used for a sunny garden yoga session so don't worry too much, but don't leave it out in the sun all day and never store in direct sunlight.
The surface of your mat may be marked by the skins natural oils. These are easily cleaned with water. However, try to avoid practising with freshly applied oily creams, suntan lotion or massage oils, as these may cause stains. Again, with water and some mild detergent these marks should come off, but it's best to avoid where possible.
