Taking care for an eKO® mat - DO NOT:
Wash it in a washing machine
Soak or submerge it in water
Use any type of soap or chemicals
Use harsh scrubbing cloth/brushes on it
Leave it in direct sunlight
Leave or store it in a hot vehicle or situation
Use the salt scrub method - that's for PRO® mats.
To clean your mat:
All eKO® mats can be cleaned by spraying them with Manduka’s Natural Rubber Mat Wash or TRIBE Eco Clean and wiping down with a soft cloth. You can also make your own cleaner by mixing 10% white vinegar and 90% water in a spray bottle.
To store your mat:
Once dry, roll it up with the closed-cell surface facing out. That is the top surface you practice on and has the red Manduka frog logo on it. If damp from cleaning it, allow the mat to air dry before rolling up.
The eKO® mat is a natural yoga mat made from sustainably harvested tree rubber. Unlike other rubber mats available today, the foaming agents used to create the eKO® are non-toxic.
Additionally, instead of using all synthetic polyester for the reinforcing mesh placed through the middle of the mat, we have chosen to use a blend of polyester and natural cotton.
To bond the two layers of the mat together around the reinforcing mesh we have opted for a heat process rather than glue as this is more ecological and stronger.
According to both customer feedback and published yoga mat reviews, the eKO® mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.
