Funky Mats - Care Guide

We recommend the following steps to keep your mat in the best condition and last as long as possible:

First Use

  • Inspect the mat for any signs of damage and let us know immediately via email if you see any
  • The new mat smell is completely normal. Leave unwrapped and it will naturally fade – if taken outside, keep in the shade
  • Curling may occur at the ends when wrapped up for a long period of time. Just flatten the mat and place heavy objects like books at the end to reduce this


  • Hand wash using a clean, soft damp cloth or eco-friendly soap with water
  • For a deep clean, add 200ml of white vinegar to a bath of warm water and soak for 30 minutes
  • Do not machine wash. To dry the mat, use a towel
  • Wipe down the mat gently and avoid over-cleaning. Scrubbing can damage the non-slip texture and design
  • Please do not use any chemical cleaning sprays and we recommend avoiding essential oils

Workouts and Storage

  • Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight – this can cause discolouration
  • Keep in mind heavy, repetitive impact could damage the mat. Pilates, yoga, stretching and other low impact moves are best
  • Avoid letting pets on the mat – paws and claws can damage the surface
  • Limit placing other items on top of the mat
  • Avoid placing close to heat sources like a radiator or fire
