Dirty Yoga Mat?

Dear Yogis, 
Below is Manduka's response to a letter I wrote the company:  they advertise a lifetime guarantee on their mats, and I was beginning to slip on my Manduka PROlite yoga mat. I thought I would share their response with you. It pertains to cleaning your yoga mat.


I have a few suggestions to help with the slipping of your mat.
I think deep cleaning and cleanse of your mat will really benefit your practice. This can be done by using:
- 50/50 mixture of water and apple cider vinegar (simply spray it on the mat and wipe down with a cloth)
- A non-solvent cleaner, such as Dr. Bronner's all natural soap
- Salt method where you will unroll your mat and generously pour salt on top of your mat. Let the salt sit for 24 hours and remove the salt with a wet cloth. To learn more about this PROcess click here.
I would like to note that Manduka does not recommend rinsing, soaking, or submerging any Manduka mat, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat. The recommended cleaning method is to spray or drizzle the preferred cleaner onto the top surface of the mat and wipe away with a cloth.
Since you are slipping once after your start your practice I would also suggest you use a yoga performance towel.

I thought the advice above might be useful to you; however, I don't know if you want to use the salt method on other than Manduka mats. 
 I hope this helps you too.
Namaste, 
Karen
