The Dirty Secret Behind Yoga Mats
All-natural YogaSpritz helps you stay clean and find your zen
Have you ever wondered what could be lurking in your yoga mat? Or worse yet, the studio mats? It turns out that while you’re doing sun salutations, you could also be picking up harmful germs and bacteria that could make you sick. Use a yoga mat cleaning spray like YogaSpritz to get rid of germs and make “clean” your mantra.
YogaSpritz is an all-natural, non-toxic cleaning spray that comes in a convenient 2-ounce bottle that can easily be carried in any workout bag or purse. This product uses the cleaning power of lemon juice and orange oil to kill germs and prevent them from growing in the future. Lemon juice and orange oil are both k known to prohibit or clean microbial growth, even better than alkaline products. Simply spray mat all over and allow a minute for the mixture to get rid of germs. Then, wipe the mat with a dry cloth or paper towel thoroughly until completely dry.
Bacteria can survive for several hours and even several days on inanimate surface and viruses can actually linger for weeks. Add to that the warm and often humid atmosphere that is present in most yoga studios and you have a recipe for the perfect germ & bacteria breeding ground.
Some common bacteria that can be found on yoga mats can cause acne and other skin conditions, strep infections and meningitis. Not surprisingly, there are also fungi such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch.
To help improve the sanitation at your local studio, here are a few things you can do:
- Ask your studio to clean yoga mats at least once a week
- Slip off your shoes before entering the studio
- Wash your hands before and after class
- Clean your mat before and after class
