Smelly Mat, Smelly Mat, How Are We Cleaning You?

We love our Tapas mats at New York Yoga, and we're so glad to be able to share them with everyone. But how do we keep them clean?

We use tea tree oil for its role as a natural antibacterial agent as well as its protective properties against viruses, fungal infections, and other nasty things. We also use peppermint oil not just because it smells nice, but because it acts as a mental stimulant, has a supportive effect on the liver and respiratory system,and improves concentration and mental sharpness.

Interestingly enough, the cool folks at Alignyo have a similar technique for keeping their mats clean, and have provided the recipe here! So if you don't want your mat to be a smelly one, check out this great article to keep your mat fresh!
