How do I clean my gym mat?
Since many exercises, such as yoga, are performed barefoot or you lie down on the mat for certain exercises, hygiene plays an important role. To ensure that you can use your gym mat for as long as possible, you should clean it regularly. To remove sweat, dust or dirt, you can fill a bucket with water and soapy water for hygienic cleaning. To clean the mat, you can either wipe it with a damp cloth or fill a spray bottle with soapy water and spray it on the training mat. Then wipe off the soapy water with a clean cloth. For more stubborn stains, leave it to soak in for a while. However, due to the material of exercise mats, aggressive cleaning agents should not be used. After cleaning, it is especially important that the mat dries sufficiently, otherwise it could start to smell or, even worse, to mold. To increase the lifespan of your gym mat, we recommend that you always step on it with clean feet. Before using the mat, you can also place a large towel underneath. This is the best way to prevent sweat residue on the exercise mat. Some manufacturers state that the mats are machine washable, but there are always risks involved. Make sure that your mat is suitable for the washing machine.
