Use and Care
- The Manduka eKO yoga mat should be cleaned regularly by wiping down the mat with Manduka's Natural Rubber Mat Wash. Other cleaning solutions are not tested or recommended, and can compromise the performance and integrity of the mat.
- DO NOT put the mat in the washing machine, as it will encourage the material to break down.
- DO NOT soak or submerge in water.
- Do not leave the mat exposed to direct sunlight.
- If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up.
- For best performance, when not in use, keep the mat rolled and in a bag or cover, as prolonged air and sun exposure can damage the rubber on the mat.
The Manduka eKO Yoga Mat is a natural yoga mat made from sustainably harvested tree rubber. Unlike other rubber mats available today, the foaming agents used to create the eKO are non-toxic. What this means is that no toxic chemicals have gone into the manufacturing process to soften rubber; when the eKO mat is disposed of and biodegrades, it will not leave behind a toxic residue. Additionally, instead of using synthetic polyester for reinforcement, Manduka has chosen to use a blend of polyester and natural cotton. According to both customer feedback and published yoga mat reviews, the eKO Mat is a high performance mat that is also good for the environment.
