We have been having a problem with the exercise mats we use in the Pilates and Yoga classes; they get really smelly due to the sweat absorbed from the hard working bodies exercising on them. We wash them regularly but this has been causing the mats to degrade. We needed to find a way to sanitise and deodorise the mats without harming them.
Ginny, our Yoga Instructor, came up with a solution. We thought we’d pass it on for all of you that are having the same problem with your mats at home. Just follow the instructions below.
150ml Witch hazel
150ml water
40 drops tea tree essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops lemongrass essential oil
Put in a spray bottle.  Shake well before use, lightly spray mat all over, wipe with a damp cloth & leave mat to dry.
