Here is our top tip on how to clean your yoga mat that is doing to solve all your problems.

During downward dogs and crane poses, your yoga mat accumulates sweat, lint, skin oil and other debris. But the biggest contributor to the stink? The bacteria from your skin and sweat. They grow and breed on your mat as time goes by and can be quite a pain to really get rid of.

What’s Our Secret To Keeping Fresh Clean Mats?

Our secret is to use a probiotic cleaner like the Oommi Multipurpose Cleaner. It effectively kills bad bacteria and removes odours, biofilms and oil. Plus, it is mild enough so it doesn’t damage your mat. 

Probiotic products are the future of sustainable living and cleaning. It is an incredible new form of non-toxic cleaning that is safe for you and the planet. Unlike chemical cleaners or antibacterial products used to kill all bacteria, probiotic cleaners replenishes surfaces with beneficial bacteria and:-

• Reduce rather than fuel antimicrobial resistance.

• Reduce the numbers of harmful bacteria in the environment in a safe and mechanical way.

• Reduce the risk of contracting bacterial infections – and so reduce the need for antibiotics.
