Mat Care Instrsuctions
These instructions are applicable to both Cork and Jute exercise mats.
1. CLEAN THE MATS AS SOON AS YOU GET IT
Use a drop of a gentle dish soap diluted very heavily with plenty of water, and wipe it gently with a very wet paper towel or non-abrasive sponge. This initial wipe process just removes the excess and doesn't fade the design. Take advantage to run your hand on the mat and get acquainted. See how the grip is actually enhanced when it is wet.
2. REGULAR CLEANING
Your mat is self cleaning so NEVER use mat cleaners, they will only reduce the performance of the materials. If you regularly practice in sweaty conditions, you may wish to clean your mat more frequently but remember over-cleaning or using abrasive products will wear them out faster. We do not recommend using any mat cleaner sprays or sprays with essential oils, as they can potentially damage the mat. If you take it to the beach, or out on an adventure the simplest way to clean it is to hosing it off!
3. LET IT DRY
Our mats dry extremely fast. Just remember that after any sweaty practice or after cleaning, hanging your mat to dry will prolong its lifespan.
4. ROLL IT UP
Roll up your mat with the top side (the cork/jute side) on the outside between uses. It’s designed to be rolled this way, and this will help ensure your mat rolls out nice and flat at each time you use it.
5. USE THE MAT
Use your mat, like a new pair of jeans, skates, or new sneakers the more you use it the more the mat will mold to you. Just an FYI, Cork can hit users with a bit of a learning curve. It may initially feel a bit slick, if you need a little extra grip add a little water on your palms. Or even better, do an extra set of push-ups to get the sweat flowing.
