Make Your Own Disinfecting Yoga Mat Spray: Quick and Easy Tutorial



DIY Disinfecting Yoga Mat Spray


Salah satu hal positif dari pandemic ini adalah saya jadi rajin olah raga. Yes, olah raga di rumah aja. Mulai dari yang awalnya tanpa punya peralatan, sampai akhirnya punya beberapa peralatan olah raga.


Salah satu peralatan olah raga yang ada di rumah adalah yoga mat. Yoga mat dengan ketebalan 10cm dari bahan Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) yang tahan minyak dan zat asam. Sebenarnya asal mula beli yoga mat ini bukan buat olah raga, tapi buat alas tidur-tiduran di lantai – itu sebabnya saya beli yang paling tebal, 10cm!



I use yoga mat every day – dengan durasi sekitar 30 menit yang bikin keringetan, yang pastinya yoga mat juga kena dampak keringat - euuhh. So I believe each of yoga mat needs a tender loving care dengan rajin dibersihkan. For I’m too frugal to buy yoga mat yang ingredients-nya gampang didapat (And mostly water!), here I make my own disinfecting yoga mat dengan alcohol dan citric acid water solution. Alcohol disini sebagai unsur disinfectant, sekaligus untuk dissolving essential oil dan membantu proses evaporasi sehingga yoga mat tidak basah. Meanwhile citric acid water solution dan lemon essential oil bersifat acid yang berfungsi sebagai natural antibacterial dan antiseptic.

Let’s make yoga mat spray and you will love to do downward dog to smell your citrusy fresh yoga mat!


PS: you can also use it to clean up your greasy stove after cooking. Bisa juga dibawa-bawa untuk disinfecting meja atau bangku di coffee shop or resto sebelum kamu duduk



Equipment

  • 70ml spray bottle

  • Glass beaker

  • Digital kitchen scale


Ingredients

  • 15 gr alcohol – I use 90% ethanol

  • 40 gr 10% citric acid water solution

  • 0.5 gr preservative – I use phenoxyethanol

  • 20 drops eucalyptus essential oil

  • 20 drops lemon essential oil

  • 6 drops peppermint oil



How to Make

  1. Didihkan air 40ml, kemudian masukkan ke dalam glass beaker

  2. Campurkan 4gr citric acid ke dalam air panas tersebut

  3. Aduk sampai citric acid larut dalam air

  4. Masukkan alcohol ke dalam spray bottle

  5. Tuang essential oils ke dalam botol

  6. Tutup botolnya dan shake hingga essential oil larut dalam alcohol – it may take time

  7. Masukkan citric acid water solution dan preservative ke dalam botol

  8. Tutup, dan shake lagi hingga semua ingredients tercampur sempurna

  9. Your yoga mat spray is ready to use!

  10. Always shake well before use



Notes

Tidak semua yoga mat material can handle essential oil _ so test first using a few sprays!


You can substitute citric acid water solution with 20gr water dan 20gr cuka putih. However, the cuka smell is stronger than this solution


Feel free to use other essential oils such as tea tree, pine, lavender, or orange


I don’t recommend skipping preservative in this recipe karena this spray contains water dan I intend to use it for more than a day
