How do I clean my mat?
You can clean your mat using a soft cloth dampened only with water. Avoid soaking the mat, and always make sure it is dry before you roll it up. If you need to clean the mat more thoroughly, use a tiny drop of dishwashing liquid diluted into plenty of water. Wipe it gently with a non-abrasive sponge that is damp but not soaking wet. Refrain from doing this too often. Do not use any oils or chemical cleaning products, as they can potentially damage the mat. After usage, roll up the mat with the top layer on the outside.

What’s the dimensions of the mat?

Combined with our supreme carrying strap 03 Line you will carry it with a smile in a comfortable and lightweight manner.
Is the mat suitable for hot yoga?

The mat I just received smells a little bit funny. What do I do?
Nothing at all! The mat is made of natural rubber, and since it has been rolled up tightly from the time of production, the mat might initially have a rubbery smell to it. Just go ahead and use it normally, and you will soon notice the smell fades away.
