If you’re hard at work perfecting yoga poses, strength training and taking HIIT classes at home, chances are you’re breaking a sweat. But while you already wash your leggings, you need to wash your sweaty yoga mat, too.
When was the last time you cleaned your yoga mat anyways? (Wiping it off with a towel doesn’t count.) OK, some of you probably clean it with a Clorox wipe, but you may want to reconsider using those chemicals since they could transfer from your mat to your hands and face.

“I have used many yoga mat cleaners, and this one is the best!” wrote one Amazon buyer in the reviews. “It does a great job at both daily cleans and deep cleanses — I didn’t realize how dirty my mat was until I saw the difference using this product.”
The cleanser comes in six amazing scents, plus an unscented version. However, if you want to add to your zen, choose from calming citrus, uplifting eucalyptus, peaceful lavender, soothing sweet rose, mindfulness lemongrass and energizing peppermint.

More importantly, however, it actually cleans your mat. The water-based cleanser uses organic essential oils to remove sweat, dirt, dust and any other grime. Plus, it’s free of parabens, phosphates and bleach. Simply spray it on your yoga mat and wipe with the included microfiber towel.
“This is the yoga mat cleaner I have been looking for,” wrote another reviewer. “I’m allergic to a lot of cleansers and sensitive to the scents of others, so it has been very difficult to find a spray for my yoga mat. This yoga mat cleaner in ‘fresh scent’ has no smell at all and leaves my mat extremely clean. I’ve had no skin irritation from using it, and I haven’t noticed any oil buildup on my mat since I changed to this spray.”
You can also use the Asutra Yoga Mat Detox cleanser on dumbbells, bike handles, resistance bands and more exercise equipment (all of which need a good clean, too).
So if you’re kicking up your workouts you should kick up your cleaning, too. Just saying.
