Keep sweat and germs off your yoga mat – clean with this toxin-free spray!
Every good yogi needs a chemical-free mat cleaner! After a good yoga session, your mat is likely steeped in sweat and germs that can leave your mat stinky. It’s definitely not something you want to sit on until it’s properly cleaned! With this handy DIY yoga mat spray, you can gently and effectively remove germs and odors for a clean, bacteria-free mat for your next yoga sesh.
This DIY spray uses witch hazel to naturally fight off bacteria. A few drops of tea tree oil are also added to help fight fungus that might cause infections like ringworm and athlete’s foot. You can even add a few drops of lavender, grapefruit or other essential oils to create your own scented cleanser.

Tip: Don’t have witch hazel? Try using apple cider vinegar, which also fights odor and germs.
Start by combining witch hazel and water in a glass measuring cup. Add 3-5 drops of tea tree oil and any other essential oils you’d like. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into a 4-ounce spray bottle. I used a metal spray bottle, but a BPA-free plastic spray bottle would also do the trick. Spray the cleaner on your mat before and after each yoga session and allow it to air dry before rolling it up.
