Washable Mats FAQs
1. How do I wash my washable mats?
To wash your washable mats, simply put them in a washing machine on a gentle cycle using cold (<30C) water and mild detergent. Avoid using fabric softener or conditioner, as it can reduce the absorbency of the mat, affecting its ability to retain moisture. Alternatively, you can clean most washable mats in the same way that you would clean a carpet, using a carpet extraction machine. However, not all mats will fit in domestic washing machines, so you may need to wash them at a commercial laundry. If the mat is too large you could damage your washing machine and the mat. If in doubt, always refer to the cleaning instructions provided by the mat manufacturer or seller for full details.
