Just like you after a day in the sun I can look a little weathered and exhausted, but if you keep me cool in the shade I'll be as straight and strong as your Warrior II pose!
If you wipe me down after each use I’ll be a happy mat. You can make a lovely, gentle yoga mat spray using a dilution of water and vinegar with a couple of drops of essential oils such as tea tree, peppermint and lavender. Mmmm.
If I’m dirty I’d love a proper wash! Please use your hands as I might get a little scattered if you run me through a machine. I like a cold bath with a dash of gentle laundry detergent and a little rub. After I’m clean I take a rinse in cool water, then hang me to dry for 24 hours in the shade. Aaaah.
All rubbers can melt in extreme temperatures, so please take extra care and avoid leaving me uncovered in the car too long or resting me on a heat retaining surface. Ouch!
