What should you look for when buying MERRITHEW Eco Yoga Mat TPE Maroon Charcoal?
Easy to Keep Your Practice Fresh After your most sweaty session, toss this durable mat in the washing machine for a fresh practice every time or simply spray and wipe clean with a mixture of tea tree oil and water. Top Layer for Grip Cleanliness The rippled top surface provides a dry non-slip grip while the closed-cell surface locks out sweat and bacteria extending the life of your mat. Bottom Layer Cushion Traction The cushioned underside adds comfort but is firm enough for balance poses and its dry-stick surface really grips the floor for rooted traction. Center Layer for Stretch Bunch Resistance A thin layer of cotton scrim works to strengthen the mat and reduces bunching underfoot by limiting surface stretch in three directions meaning your mat lays flat as you shift weight between poses

Customer reviewsPerfect except for the smell .
I exercise four to five times a week, alternating between yoga and high intensity interval training. I work out in our very small family room to various exercise DVDs , and I always put a mat down on the hardwood floors, because they are so, well, hard.
