How to Care for Your Mat

Marks on this style of mat come with the territory, most will easily wipe off or wear off over time, but overall we hope you will see these as part of the story of your practice and forming the character of your mat.

To avoid the worst of the marks, avoid applying oil or moisturiser of any kind to your skin or hair before practising.

If you wish to remove the marks on your mat, simply wipe gently with soft cloth using water and very diluted cleaning liquid, or vinegar, ensuring your cloth is well wrung out.

Never use cleaning agents with essential oils, alcohol or petroleum-based solvents on your mat

Lay flat to dry.

Do not leave in the sun.

Roll with the pattern facing out when dry. Do not fold your mat.

    Why does my mat smell?

    Mats made from rubber will have a natural rubber smell. You can air your mat for a few days to help minimise this and it will wear off in time.

    If you're smelling something other than rubber you probably need to wash your mat, follow the care instructions above.
