Sounds good. That recipe can be used for other things too-room spritzer, linen refresher. It would be very good to use in a hotel room to reduce bacteria and other nasties in the bedding, carpet, etc.

So I'm starting a hot yoga class this week and thought it would be helpful to have a mat cleaner. However, I don't live in the most eco-friendly or even yoga-friendly area so I thought about making my own. In a brief search I came across the link below. It gives a recipe for making mat cleaner that sounds pretty great. Also found that the studio cells an organic cleaner as well but thought it might be neat to make my own and share with others :) If you have any other similar recipes, feel free to share!

us/yoga-mat-cleaner-recipe/


1/4 cup water (purified or distilled if possible)

1/4 cup witch hazel

10 drops tea tree oil

6 drops of other essential oils (lavender, lemongrass, rosemary, whatever your heart desires)

Place all ingredients in your spray bottle, shake and clean! Some extra notes, some witch hazel products contain 14% alcohol. This will not damage your natural rubber mat, but you can also find witch hazel with no alcohol if you wish to be completely alcohol free. When creating your custom scent, tea tree oil will be the main ingredient in your yoga mat cleaner after water and witch hazel, so when you experiment with your oils, be sure to put that in first. Going heavy on the lavender usually comes out very pleasant. You can spray onto your mat before or after your yoga class (but if you use it after, your mat will be fresh for each practice). Spray a thin layer onto your mat and wipe off with a dry or slightly dampened cloth or paper towel. If you have time to let your mat dry before you need it again, you can get your mat a little wetter and use a little more spray.

Enjoying my moments, one at a time. . .
