In recent years, it has been shown that there are more young women who do yoga frequently in the dermatology department of the hospital. But many people think that PU yoga mats are the source of infection, and now we are not sure whether our skin diseases are related to PU yoga mats. Every time we practice yoga, there is sweat on the PU yoga mat, do we need to clean it?
In fact, there is sweat on the PU yoga mat, we need to clean it, but the PU yoga mat needs to be cleaned regularly. We want to practice yoga easily, but the PU yoga mat is very dirty, which will make people unable to lift their energy. If we play with the PU yoga mat that is not cleaned, there are bacteria, fungi and dust mites on the body. These bacteria will cause folliculitis, fungal tinea, foot odor, and dust mites can cause asthma .
How do we clean the PU yoga mat after we use it?
1. Put two cups of water and four drops of detergent into the sprayer, spray the PU yoga mat, and then dry it with a clean and dry towel. If we don’t like the smell of detergent, we can add it in clean water. A small amount of salt, also sprayed on the PU yoga mat, can also achieve the cleaning effect.
2. If you wash a PU yoga mat for a long time, we must use a powerful cleaning method. First fill the bathtub or the large washbasin with cold water, and put a small amount of washing powder, the less washing powder the better, because the PU yoga mat will not be cleaned will leave traces of washing powder. Then wipe the mat with a damp cloth dampened with washing powder and water, and then rinse it off, then use a dry towel to roll up the PU yoga mat to absorb excess water, and finally put it in a cool and ventilated place to dry.
