Slippery yoga mat is trying to kill me

My overpriced and extra thick yoga mat is trying to kill me.

It has suddenly become very very slippery, which isn’t exactly reassuring when you are in a particularly tricky upside down balancing pose.

Someone suggested that I wash it – at 40 degrees, with no detergent and no tumble drying.

I was pleasantly surprised that the mat hadn’t deteriorated at the end of the wash cycle, but my ‘friend’ didn’t mention is it would take over 48 hours to dry… if it ever does dry then I am hoping that it will be less slippery but at the moment I am tempted to just buy a new mat!
