Get the Smell Out of Your Yoga Mat

It is important to get rubber smell out of your yoga mat. This smell can be very annoying and give you the willies when it gets into your clothing. With the smell, this will make you less inclined to want to do a pose or work out because you have so much mental pressure on you. This will also affect your enjoyment of your yoga session. The good news is that you can get rid of this smell for good by following a few simple steps.

One of the first things you want to do is to take a look at the source of the smell. If you have dried-up sweat glands in your body, then you need to work on getting those out of your yoga mat. A lot of the time, this can happen over time but sometimes it can happen as quickly as overnight. Once you get your glands out, the rubber smell will likely disappear from your mat as well. It may take several sessions before you notice the change but you will find that you are able to enjoy a more comfortable workout with the smell of sweat and odor off of your mat.

You should also make sure that you are cleaning your yoga mat on a regular basis. The odor will soon become noticeable but if you have your mats regularly cleaned then it will be easier to get rid of the smell as well. Take a look at your mat daily and make sure that you clean it after every use. Be sure to use an absorbent towel for every mat that you clean. By doing this, you will reduce the amount of bacteria that will form over time and the smell will also go away. Regular cleaning of your mat will help it last longer and your workout will be better.
