What to Look For In A Yoga Mat Cleaning Spray

You’ve been through a lot with your yoga mat- hours of sun salutations, hot Bikram classes and lots and lots of sweat. You already know the importance of giving your yoga mat a safe, gentle and regular clean.

Ideally, it’s best to clean your yoga mat after every use to avoid the build up of sweat and germs that causes odors. As you may have discovered the hard way, some cleaning products are harsh on your yoga mat and your skin. Others just mask smells with synthetic fragrances.

Don’t settle for a toxic or incomplete clean- you and your yoga mat deserve better! Here are some things to look for when choosing the best yoga mat cleaning spray:

A Yoga Mat Spray Safe for Sensitive Skin

Your yoga mat is meant to be touched, sat on and laid on with your bare skin. Don’t clean it with chemicals that aren’t safe for your body. Watch out for things like chlorine, ammonia, and alcohol in your spray-- these ingredients can cause irritation and rashes. Luckily, all Vapor Fresh cleaning products are designed with your health and wellness in mind! Vapor Fresh Natural Cleaning and Deodorizing Spray uses 100% natural active ingredients that will not irritate sensitive skin yet is still strong enough for even the smelliest yoga mats. Vapor Fresh Natural Cleaning and Deodorizing Spray is also safe and gentle enough to use every day so you can be diligent in preventing odors.

A Yoga Mat Spray That Won’t Leave Residue

Leftover cleaning residue on your yoga mat can inhibit your practice. It’s also unpleasant to see and feel under your fingertips. Look for a spray that will dry completely without leaving a sticky, wet mess behind. We designed Vapor Fresh Natural Cleaning and Deodorizing Spray to dry completely without leaving any annoying residue. You will never have to worry about sticking to or slipping on your mat again!

A Yoga Mat Spray That Smells Great, Naturally

Achieving a pleasant smelling yoga mat can be tough. Be wary of sprays that use artificial scents-- these can be toxic and irritating to your lungs, skin and body. Instead, opt for a cleaning spray that uses natural or naturally-occuring fragrances. We developed Vapor Fresh Natural Cleaning and Deodorizing Spray to be completely free of toxic ingredients like artificial fragrances. Instead, we use all-natural fragrances from essential oils like Lavender, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oil to leave your yoga mat smelling fresh and clean.

Stay one step ahead of odors with an effective yoga mat cleaning spray. Choose a spray that’s non-toxic and won’t leave behind irritating residue, a spray without artificial fragrances and a spray strong enough to get the job done. Choose Vapor Fresh Cleaning and Deodorizing Spray for a safe, refreshing clean.
