Use and maintenance
A disadvantage of the classis Yoga mat is that it will lose its grip in wet conditions. You can solve this problem by using a Yoga towel. An example of a proper yoga towel is the Ecoyogi Hot Yoga Towel.
You can clean the mat with a cloth or a soft brush and water. Add a few drops of ecological washing powder to the water, before you start cleaning the mat. Don’t use bleach, oil nor vinegar. These agents may have a bad effect on the quality of the mat. Prevent soap residue from remaining on the mat by sweeping the mat one last time with water. Always have the surface dry properly before using the mat again. The Classic Yoga Mat is not suitable for a drying machine but can be dried in the sun or a well-ventilated room.
If you just purchased the mat, it can feel a bit oily. This is quite normal and is caused by the manufacturing process, with the oily substance ensuring the mat won’t get stuck to the press. The layer will wear off by itself, but you can speed up this process by cleaning the mat properly and scrub it robustly. The best way to do it, is with a Vileda sponge (non-scratch) and some ecological detergent.
