To Clean: All eKO series mats can be cleaned by wiping down the mat with Manduka’s Natural Rubber Mat Wash. It is recommended that you DO NOT put your eKO mat in the washing machine, as it will encourage the material to break down. DO NOT soak or submerge in water and DO NOT use any type of soap for cleaning, as it will compromise the performance and integrity of the mat. To Store: Do not leave the mat exposed to direct sunlight. If wet, allow the mat to dry before rolling up. Please note - the salt method is not intended for eKO mats.
