Caring for your yoga mat and accessories is essential to ensure their longevity and to maintain optimal performance. Cleaning your pieces between each use or as needed will help to remove dirt, sweat, and oils that can accumulate over time.
By investing time in proper care and storage, you can enjoy clean, durable, and reliable yoga mats and accessories, enabling you to focus more deeply on your practice and growth over time.
How to clean your microsuede yoga mat
For cleaning between use we recommend that mats are wiped with a clean, damp cloth and then air dried. The cloth can be dampened with water and a dilution of natural detergent. Microsuede will readily absorb moisture so it’s important that the cloth is well wrung out to ensure the mat does not hold too much moisture and dry faster.

How to clean your cork yoga mat
To clean your cork yoga mat, start by wiping it down with a damp cloth to remove any surface dirt or sweat. Avoid using excessive water, as cork is a porous material.
For more stubborn stains, you can mix a mild natural detergent with water and lightly scrub the affected area using a soft brush or sponge. Remove any residue with a clean damp cloth.
Once you've finished cleaning, allow the mat to air dry completely before rolling it up for storage. Avoid direct sunlight or heat sources, as they can damage the cork material.
How to clean your yoga bolster and meditation cushion
Each of our yoga bolsters and meditation cushions contain an inner-lining which holds their buckwheat hull filling. This allows you to remove and wash the outer cover to keep your bolster or cushion fresh. We recommend spot cleaning with a damp cloth as required. For a more heavy-duty clean unzip the outer cover and hand wash it in a natural laundry liquid. Allow the outer cover to dry naturally before re-covering.
How to clean your cork yoga block and cork roller
To clean your cork yoga blocks and rollers start by wiping the surfaces with a damp cloth or sponge to remove any dirt or debris. If there are any stubborn stains or marks, you can use a mild natural detergent or a mixture of water and vinegar to gently scrub the affected areas. Use a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue but avoid over-saturating with water.
Steer clear of any harsh chemicals or solvents as they can damage the cork material. Pat your cork block or roller dry and allow them to air dry completely before storing.
