When my yoga mat got grungy, I was ready to wipe it with disinfectant wipes. But because the wipes had dried out, I did a little research to see what was available commercially for this purpose. Turns out you can make your own spray easily for very little money. Here’s a recipe I developed. I store it in a colorful red spray bottle that I bought at IKEA for 50 cents!
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
5 drops essential oil (I like lavender, but other nice fragrances include mint, lemon, and teatree)
Shake and spray. Let sit for perhaps 10 minutes. Wipe down with a clean rag. Let dry (drying in sunlight helps kill microbes).
