At this year's Yoga Journal Conference I received a free bottle of Nama Hand and Yoga Mat Sanitizer ($6). The timing couldn't have been better: I had a class with Ana Forrest scheduled for later that day and forgot to bring my DIY mat cleaner from home. I've since used the entire bottle of Nama sanitizer up, and while I'm still partial to my homemade tea tree mat sanitizer, Nama is a great option for people who aren't into DIY cleaners.
What I like best about the Nama sanitizer mist is that it's natural and safe to use on my mat. There's nothing artificial about it; instead it's made up of things like green tea extract, peppermint oil, water, and alcohol (to really get rid of the germs). Since chemical-filled cleaners are one of the reasons I started making my own mat cleaner at home, it's nice to have a retail option for times when I might be in a bind. Like any mist sanitizer, it's also easy to use — just spray and wipe dry. But, what's really great about this spray is how good it smells. The scent of peppermint is completely invigorating and fresh, and it ensures that I am never caring around a smelly mat.
