Today self-care is majorly important. When even taking out the trash is something to be excited about, you might also think since I am out why not go to the store. Instead of getting more toilet paper/roll, we have a few items you might not have considered. 

Vermont Soap Yoga Mat Cleaners

Time to pull the dusty old yoga mat out of the closet for some of you and for the rest of us time to think about cleaning it. Cleaning the house has become therapeutic for myself these last few weeks, and I am a big fan of sage. Vermont Soap has the calming scent of sage and the zen you need while cleaning your mat. 

Daily Cleaning: Spray 3 times onto a wet cloth or paper towel and lightly scrub. Wipe down mat with a clean cloth and air dry.

Medium Cleaning: Lightly spray onto the mat. Rinse, wipe dry, air dry

Deep Cleaning and Restoration: Spray directly onto mat and soak 3 minutes. Work into a lather with a wet cloth, rinse, wipe dry and air dry. Repeat if needed.

The yoga mat should be completely dry before storing.

Give your hard-working yoga mat some naturally nurturing TLC with Vermont Soap's Yoga Mat Cleaner from Live in the Light.
Formulated with organic saponified coconut and jojoba oils blended with essential oils it will naturally clean and freshen your yoga without the need for potentially harmful synthetic chemicals.

At Vermont Soap they use 100% natural and certified organic plant seed oils like palm, coconut and olive. Scent and astringency comes from using natural essential oils like orange, lavender and pine. They add plants and plant concentrates like organic aloe, cinnamon, orange peel and oatmeal.

Sustainable brand Rippl

I hate to admit in times like this I also I always have apocalyptic thoughts. What can I grab that we would need if we had to run? In our times definitely a reusable water bottle and straws.  I hate to drink for glasses in restaurants without a straw. It is a cleanliness thing for me.

Now with most juice joints now not giving straws, or ones made out of paper or pasta one of my favourites. We currently have straws that we can reuse and take anywhere.  I have tried the glass and metal ones and prefer the metal less pretty than the glass ones, but more durable.

So two items you might have forgotten about are a water bottle and a straw.  When you take your daily walk, you can whip up a shake or just bring water with you in case you have to run. LOL.  Rippl is working with us to walk right into the new world we have to get used to living.
