Can I wash my danskin yoga mat?

It would be great if anyone could answer this question for me. Would my Danskin yoga mat survive a cycle in the washing machine? Or is that just a really bad idea? Or should I just run some water and some sort of cleaner over it?

I appreciate any advice. 🙂

I have always just hand washed mine. First rinse it off with warm water in the tub. Then put the stopper in the tub and fill it with enough water to cover the mat. Add 1/2 cup white vinegar to the water. Let it sit 30 minutes. Drain the water, rinse the mat. Wring out the mat, wipe it off with a towel and hang it to dry.

Vinegar is a great deodorizer and the vinegar smell dissipates as it dries.

I would just take it outside on the porch with a bucket of soapy water and wash it off- rinse it with the hose and let it dry good before bringing it back in! 🙂

Antibacterial wipes work best. try Lysol wipes. It’s all you’ll need.
