You may bring your own mat to class. You may even wash it regularly with special cleansers. But now EquiFit SpaCare has created a supposedly easier way prevent fungus from making a home on your mat: the whole mat is antimicrobial.
The new AgSilver CleanMat has antimicrobial ionic silver embedded in its fibers to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. It’s also PVC- latex-free and costs about $65. This might be useful for those of you who can’t seem to get rid of foot fungus or for germ-phobes (like me). For more information, visit http://equifitspacare.com/detail/?ProductID=509527.
Anyone interested? How many of you regularly wash your mats? How many of you use studio mats?
