Homemade Yoga Mat Cleaner

What is living on your Yoga mat? I don't want to know but I have a pretty good imagination so I am guessing that those mats, where we find such peace and tranquility, can get pretty gnarly after even just a couple uses. I don't know if you caught a whiff of my new found love of essential oils but I thought it would be neat to make my own yoga mat cleaner, because I can and I will be crafty whenever possible + also like the idea of creating the scent that is perfect for me (and that I don't mind smelling while I am in practice). All I needed was a few ingredients and I had my own little "brand"... and everything was something I had in the house already!

What I Used:
It's as easy as mixing the spray bottle 3/4 full of water and fill the remainder of the bottle with white vinegar. You'll only need a tiny bit of space for the oils and it's sort of up to you how much you put in. I love the clean smell of tea tree oil (and it's a natural disinfectant) but a little goes a long way. The lavender + peppermint oils are one of my favorite combinations for some reason. Maybe the fresh-calming? Dunno, but Mama likes. Then just shake, shake, shake it. I have used it to clean up big baby sized messes on my mats! ;-)

It's OK if you don't want to make your own. There are PLENTY of options that are ready to go when you are. Here are some of my favorites, though if I had to choose, I would tell you to pick up the Herban Essential Towelettes because they are individual, fit in your gym bag or pockets, no problem!
