Usage and care:
It is best to clean the eKO mat with a natural detergent. We advise you to clean the mat with a mixture of 50% biological vinegar or cider and 50% water. You may also use the readily made solution by Manduka (Manduka Mat Restore). Subsequently, rinse the mat with clear water (tap water). We advise you not to put the mat in the washing machine, as it shall speed up the degradation of the mat.
ATTENTION! Do not expose the mat to large quantities of direct sunlight. This may speed up the oxidation process and alter the composition of the mat, causing it to lose its unique qualities.
Storage: If the mat is wet, we advise you to let it dry before rolling and storing it. If you don't, it may depreciate the sustainability.
Thanks to the production process, the Manduka eKO mat is for 99% latex free and hence safe to be used for people who are oversensitive to latex. If you are also sensitive to traces of latex, then we advise you to purchase a yoga mat from the Manduka PRO series.
