Without soaking or submerging, use a generous amount of Manduka’s Natural Rubber Mat Wash to clean the mat. Allow the cleaner to sit for a few minutes and then gently wipe around with a damp cloth and let the mat dry in a shaded area.
We do not recommend cleaning your mat with a garden hose, putting it in the bathtub, shower, washing machine, or using a vacuum cleaner, as any of these will likely damage the mat beyond repair. Do not leave the mat exposed to excessive amounts of sunlight. Do not use any type of soap for cleaning, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat. The salt method is not intended for eKO® mats.
