Yoga Mat Cleaner Spritz

From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.

When my yoga mat got grungy, I was ready to wipe it with disinfectant wipes.  But because the wipes had dried out, I did a little research to see what was available commercially for this purpose.  Turns out you can make your own spray easily for very little money.  Here’s a recipe I developed.  I store it in a colorful red spray bottle that I bought at IKEA for 50 cents!

3/4 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
5 drops essential oil (I like lavender, but other nice fragrances include mint, lemon, and tea tree)
Funnel into spray bottle.  Shake and spray.  Let sit for perhaps 10 minutes.  Wipe down with a clean rag.  Let dry (drying in sunlight helps kill microbes).
