I tried cleaning my yoga mat in the bath tub – which worked when I had a weekend to devote to it. But between practices I wanted something easier. Enter Jo-Sha Wipes and this Jo-Sha Wipes review.
Jo-Sha Wipes Review
I learned about Jo-Sha wipes from searching for my conundrum on Google. I used Jo-Sha Wipes several times before writing this Jo-Sha Wipes review, and I’ll be using Jo-Sha Wipes going forward to clean my Manduka Black Mat Pro yoga mat.

From the Jo-Sha Wipes website:
Jo-Sha Wipes are much more convenient than sprays, and unlike commercial wipes, Jo-Sha Wipes contain no alcohol or harsh chemicals, so they won’t dry out skin or other surfaces and will actually preserve the life of your equipment. Jo-Sha Wipes dry quickly and evaporate completely, leaving no slippery residue. Jo-Sha Wipes are ideal for yoga mats, pilates equipment, hands, feet, and just about anything else.

Jo-Sha Wipes Review:
Function: The wipes definitely removed the dirt and grime from my mat. Even with daily cleaning you would be surprised what kind of gunk can cling to a yoga mat! I also loved the essential oils which are infused in the wipes for a natural smell. I found it worked best to use the wipe on the top of my mat and then if possible wipe down the bottom as well.
Convenience: These wipes are more than convenient to use. If you are on-the-go in between classes you can use the individually packaged wipes. If you practice at home, or maybe work at a studio, you could easily use the bulk pack and keep it on hand for daily use.
For the price I think the bulk pack of Jo-Sha Wipes is reasonable (about $13) which if you even practice once a week, would last nearly a year. The individually packaged Jo-Sha Wipes are a little more ($15 to $17 for a 20-pack) but offer greater convenience. At times I wished the wipes were soaked a little bit more – saturated – because sometimes I found I wanted more cleaner for my mat. But overall I was happy with this product and would use them again.
