How to Clean a Lululemon Yoga Mat


The warm, dark and sweaty environment of a yoga class can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Though an antibacterial treatment is mixed into the top layer of Lululemon’s signature yoga mat, The Mat, a buildup of sweat and dirt can still result in sanitation issues and cause germs to come in contact with your skin, mouth and nasal passages. Cleaning your mat after each use with a natural cleanser, such as water mixed with lemon juice, can help to reduce bacteria buildup.

Step 4

Wipe the surface with a clean, dry towel. Flip the mat over and repeat the cleaning process on the second side. Cleaning both the top and bottom layer of the mat ensures that it will stay clean when the two sides touch, such as while it is rolled up.
