DIY Natural Yoga Mat Cleaner

DIY Natural Yoga Mat Cleaner

You all know by now that I love yoga – like a lot. In 2014, however, I fell off that bandwagon real hard. I’m happy to say that I’ve rekindled my love for yoga and have been practicing almost every day. I’ve been turning on yoga videos instead of heading to an in-person class, because it’s honestly not in my budget right now. Two of my favorite places to watch yoga vids online are ReflexionYoga (Simply Nicole readers get a yearly membership for only $69!) and Sarah Beth Yoga on Youtube.

Since I’ve been practicing yoga more regularly, I realized that my yoga mat was getting pretty gross. I didn’t want to go out and buy a chemical-filled cleaner, so after doing some research I decided to make my own natural yoga mat cleaner! 

DIY Natural Yoga Mat Cleaner



  • Fill spray bottle 3/4 of the way with water
  • Fill rest of bottle with witch hazel, leaving an inch at the top
  • Add in 10 drops of tea tree oil and 5 drops eucalyptus oil
  • Tighten the spray bottle top and shake well

I absolutely love this yoga mat cleaner and the way it smells. If you don’t like the smell of eucalyptus, feel free to use any other essential oil you like. Peppermint and lavender are great choices! I got these products from VitaCost, an online store that has over 45,000 healthy products including vitamins, supplements, health foods, sports nutrition products, bath & beauty favorites, home and pet products. I love VitaCost because they have prices much lower than your average grocery store and even Target. Your order gets delivered super fast too! I placed my order on a Monday and I received it that Wednesday.

They aren’t paying me to say any of this stuff, I just genuinely love them. If you’re interested, use this link ( to receive $10 off your first order

    Does this work effectively as a disinfectant? Especially for community yoga mats or gym equipment?
