You don’t have to “live off the grid” to make your own cleaning products (or beauty products for that matter). City, suburbanites and country yogis alike can easily whip up a do-it-yourself yoga mat cleaner. The best part: it’s fun to create homemade cleaners, and once you find or create a recipe you love, you’ll no longer have to pony up 5 bucks or more for a small 2 oz bottle of brand name yoga mat cleaner.
