Do you ever clean your Pilates/yoga mat? Here is a simple DIY mat cleaner that you can make at home!
This simple recipe utilizes witch hazel, water and essential oils. You can switch up the oils based on your preferences, but here are the reasons I chose tea tree, lavender and peppermint oil in my DIY mat cleaner:
Lavender: eliminates nervous tension, disinfectant properties, means “to wash” due to it’s cleansing aroma.
Peppermint: antimicrobial properties, improve mental focus, energizing.
Tea Tree (aka: melaleuca): antimicrobial properties, removes odor, removes mold.
DIY Mat Cleaner
3/4 cup distilled water
1/4 cup alcohol-free witch hazel (white vinegar would work too)
5 drops lavender oil
3 drops peppermint oil
3 drops tea tree oil
Combine ingredients in a glass spray bottle and shake to mix. Spray DIY mat cleaner on your mat, wipe with a cloth and allow to air dry.
