When you first purchase an Earth Me mat the rubber smell will be a little obvious so air it outside away from direct sunlight for a few days when you are not using it. The smell will dissipate given time.
Don’t put your earth.me mat in a washing machine or submerge it in water.
Use Tribe eco.clean mat cleaner or make your own solution of 1 part vinegar to 10 parts water. Using a soft cloth, spot clean your mat as required and allow to dry naturally before storing.
Harsh chemicals and scrubbing brushes should not be used on this mat as it is 100% natural tree rubber. She is tough but sensitive - a lot like you!
Keep your earth.me away from direct sunlight and high temperatures. The back of a car or near a heater are not recommended.
