Given proper care and handling your Mocana products will give you years of service and enhance your yoga practice.
Due to the high non-slip quality of the mat, a non-slip towel with dots is not required. So as to protect this special grip surface, placing such a towel with the plastic non-slip dots on the mat would embed marks in it.
Mocana Nimbus & Stratus cleaning
To ensure that your mat stays clean, wipe it down after your practice with warm water. You can use a very mild soap to clean it. Never clean your mat with undiluted soap or undiluted essential oils.
Always keep your mat out of direct sunlight. To dry your mat, lie it down on a flat clean surface, or rest it on a towel rail. Make sure to always roll your mat up after drying it, since storing the mat in the wrong position could form creases in the soft top surface layer.
Never store your mat unless it is completely dry, if you store the mat without it being properly dry this could damage the soft top layer. Always roll your mat up for storage. Be sure to roll it up with the practice side (the soft smooth rubber side with the logo and alignment stripe that you practice on) on the outside. Rolling up the mat the other way will cause creases.
You can easily keep your yoga mat smelling fresh by using a yoga mat spray or by making your own. To make your own you will need:
· Small spray bottle
· Distilled or spring water (3/4 of spray bottle)
· 2 drops of tea tree essential oil
· 1 drop of lavender essential oil
Tea tree essential oil is antibacterial and anti-fungal. Lavender essential oil is an antibacterial oil with a relaxing and pleasant scent. Shake the bottle before use, then spray the entire surface of the mat on the back of the mat. Do not spray on the practice side as this will reduce grip. Wipe down with a damp cloth and allow a few minutes to dry.
