How to clean blood off a yoga mat?

My yoga mat got blood on it a few weeks ago. How do I clean this off?


  1. How to Clean a Yoga Mat:
    Things You’ll Need:
    mild detergent
    warm water
    spray bottle
    Light Cleaning
    To clean minor stains or freshen your mat, mix four drops of dish soap into two cups of water. Spray the mat with the solution and wipe clean with a cloth or sponge.
    Heavier Cleaning
    For a heavier soiling, soak the mat in a solution of warm water and a few drops of soap. Wash the mat in soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
    Before letting your mat air dry, lay a towel on it and roll it jelly-roll style. Step on the mat to squeeze out excess water. Do not put the mat into a dryer.
    Washing Machine
    For general cleaning, you can put your mat into the washing machine with a detergent for delicates and run it on a light or gentle cycle. Use only cold water to avoid damaging the mat.
    Cleaning Schedule
    Yoga mats should be cleaned once every two months, depending on how often the mat is used.
    Do not use too much soap with any cleaning method or your mat might become slippery during use.
