How to clean and care the TPE yoga mat?
TPE yoga mats are very durable and can last you years, as long as you keep them clean and give them some care.
To clean, just use cloth or towel to wipe down or wash with mild soap and water and let air dry.
1.Don’t use a washing machine or dryer.
2. After use, pls roll the mat up, pls don’t fold, to avoid the mat appeared folding traces
3. Don’t place the yoga mat in high temperature area, such as car trunk.
Don’t use it for hot yoga. High temperature will cause deformation of TPE material.

In this instance one comes with the mat.
At this stage no need to spend more than you need.

Many yoga studio’s provide mats and the other items you will more than likely have at home.
Don’t feel you need to go out and spend a lot of money to get started.
These are only suggestions for you.
Best to just get started with your yoga practice and worry later about all the extras you may want later.
