Make Your Own Yoga Mat Cleaner

My husband and I have both been doing Yoga lately and since we usually don't do it together (he likes mornings and I detest them) we frequently use the same mat.  Even if that wasn't the case, anything that you exercise on frequently surely needs a good cleaning now and then.  Also some mats you can't tell one side from the other so who knows if your doing corpse pose on the side that was pressed against the floor last time.  eeck..

Anyway, I found a bunch of sites that show you how to clean your mats without having to buy special cleaner which I've heard is hard to find at stores.  Online you can get it for $10 - $20.

3 Healthy Chicks has instructions on how to deep clean your yoga mat, make a spray cleaner, a lavender spray, and a water/vinegar spray.  So lots of options for any budget!!

I also like this post on how to make a yoga mat cleaner spray with a how-to video!

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
