How To Beat Bacteria Build Up On Your Yoga Mat (Win!)

May 16, 2021

If anything, this pandemic has notched up our solo-workout game, with our at-home fitness practices, including yoga, Pilates and HIIT, feeling stronger than ever. The one downside? Some very stinky, sweaty and downright nasty exercise equipment! Luckily, our friends at Taurah, a Canadian-made and female-founded brand that locally produces all-natural wellness products, has the solution.

Taurah’s bestselling Yoga Mat Cleanser ($25) is the all-natural, vegan way to refresh yoga mats and home workout equipment. (Did you know that every cubic centimetre of your mat has up to 100,000 bacteria AND this multiplies every single day you don’t clean your mat? A horrifying fact!) After your workout, simply shake up the bottle and mist onto your mat. Wipe down with a towel and let everything dry before rolling up your mat. Last but not least, enjoy the citrus scent to finish off your workout and practice!
