How to care for mats and props

 

With the proper tender, love and care your Yogiraj mats and props can be some of the most sustainable and durable products. Just like reliable yoga friends should be. 

 

A note on the grip 

A tight grip helps holding positions. A tight grip is also something that is very subjectively experienced from person to person. It can depend on anything from experience, technique, hand lotion or how swetty one actually gets. What can be said in general about most yoga mats, independently of brand, is that the grip enhances with use over time. A yoga mat needs a to be broken in. So please give your new yoga mat a little patience and love. For several mats one can try to rug the surface and speed up the natural process with a little sea salt on a damp cloth (does not apply for organic mats). With that said, please give your mat a chance to evolve into your best yoga buddy and thank you for contributing to a more sustainable planet. 

All mats and props from Yogiraj are always 100% free from toxin and produced in eco-friendly materials, many products also being organic following the general guidelines of GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). 

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS MATS

Organic premium mat 4 mm & 6 mm

Yogirajs Organic premium mat is made of nature rubber and 100% natural jute weave. Organic premium is recycable and biolgocially degradable. With the right care this is one of the most durable organic mats on the market. Please note that all organic mats do tend to have a shorter lifespan than e.g. PVC-mats. 

Organic mats are easily cleaned with a mat cleaning spray for organic mats. You can also make your own mixture at home of organic apple cider vinegar and water 50/50. Spray it on with a spray bottle to even out the drops over the mat. Wipe it off with a cloth. Let it do its work for a few minutes if you need a more thorough cleaning. 

Do not expose Organic premium mat to direct sunlight, since the sun will dry it out. Organic premium mat shall also not be showered or rinsed off. Organic premium is not compatible with a yoga towel with nubs (e.g skidless) since this will tear the mat. Also, do not use salt water on Organic premium mat.

 

All-round mat 4 mm & 6 mm

The popular All-round mat is just getting better and better with more use. This is one of the few mats that can actually be machine washed, a hygienic factor many yogis and studios today highly value. Wash it at 30 degrees without centrifugation. Use a mild washing powder and avoid bleach or fabric softener. You can also wipe the mat with a damp cloth. Let hang free or roll into a towel to absorb moisture. 

Tip! If you want to speed up the process that is otherwise naturally happen over a longer time of use to increase the grip of the mat you can sprinkle sea salt generously over the All-round mat and leave to work for 24 h. Then wipe it off with a damp cloth.

 

All-round premium mat 5 mm

Grip mat 5 mm

Grip mat with its ultimate grip and plain ultra absorbing surface is best cleaned with a damp cloth regularly, especially after a sweaty yoga session. You could add a drop of washing up liquid  in warm water on a cloth for extra cleaning. Do not use oil based cleaning or moisturiser or etheric oils before use of the mat since this can affect the grip negatively. 

Tip! After six months of intense or more regular use the Grip mat could use a more thorough cleaning to restore grip. We recommend a mixture of bicarbonate, baking soda or white vinegar heavily diluted in water. Swipe of the mat with the mixture and let it dry. Use with care and maximum once every six months. 

 

All-round travel mat 2 mm

Since the travel mat hopefully sometimes get out on a trip or maybe outside this mat could use some cleaning now and then. Just swipe it off with a damp cloth, hang or roll up in a towel to absorb moisture.
