Suggested Scent: Grapefruit, Jasmine, Lavender
The use of technical fibres in exercise/swim/adventure clothing has dramatically increased over the past few years. Although some of these can be washed by machine, manufacturers are still recommending that you use a delicate soap to help preserve the integrity of the fibre to keep it looking and performing like new.
The lavender or grapefruit scent might be preferable as those essential oils have natural antiseptic properties.

- Fill your bathtub about 1/3 of the way with tepid water and add 5mL/1 tsp of Eucalan per 4L/1G of water.
- Place your yoga mat in the water.
- Depending on the size of your yoga mat and bath tub it may be a bit of a squeeze, but do the best you can!

- Allow to soak for 5-10 minutes.
- Flip mat over to scrub other side, and soak for 5-10 minutes more.
