The yoga mat in VSE
The yoga mat made of thermoplastic elastomer foam, is easy to maintain! After each use, use a cloth soaked in soapy water or a small amount of essential oil or alcohol-free perfume.
Once or twice a year, you can hose it down (garden hose, shower…) for a deep cleaning, without chemicals. Once you have washed your carpet, lay it out on your clothesline, without direct contact with the sun or too high a temperature (above 25 C°)as this could deteriorate its foam.
TPE foam is a very resistant material, but sensitive to greasy substances (moisturizer, hair mask…) and cat’s claws!
Polyurethane yoga mats

However, if it is made of a rigid or fragile material such as thermoplastic elastomer or polyurethane, the carpet should be washed with water and a little soap with a microfiber cloth to avoid damaging the covering.
