DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner

Ok folks... I've been searching for an easy spray that I can use to clean my yoga mat.  After searching the internet and numerous recipes, I put together this super simple spray. Do you want to know the best part? All of the ingredients can be found right in your OWN HOME!!  Ha! I knew that would get your attention! So here is the ingredient list:


3/4 cup water
3 tablespoons Witch Hazel
Essential oil (I used 5 drops lavender, 8 drops lemon, 6 drops peppermint...just make sure you use one that has antibacterial properties)

1. Assemble your supplies

2. Mix the ingredients into your spray bottle and shake to mix.

3. Spray your mat

4. Wipe clean

5. Ta daaaa!!!! You're done!! Super simple, right??!! :)... and now your mat smells so fresh and clean.

  1. I really need to invest in a yoga mat instead of using my surroundings! Seems like a great simple way to clean a mat. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for commenting!! Yes, this spray is so SIMPLE!!! I was a little 'embarrassed' when I first cleaned my mat with this spray...(didn't realize how dirty my mat was!!) I've used other wipes in the past but...I didn't notice it wiping anything off. Definitely sticking to this spray!!! :)

  2. I haven't even thought about this. I should really clean mine!!


  3. Oh you definitely should! Not only does the spray smell AMAZING (just a word of warning... you might begin to wear it as perfume!! ha!) but it's so nice having a fresh clean mat!

    Thanks for stopping by, Stephanie!
