Prevent water rings and coffee stains with DIY coasters! Simply cut the mat into circles to make mini-trays for beverages. Since yoga mats are absorbent, it will keep any moisture from seeping through your furniture.
RL Tip: To make even circles, use a medium-sized cookie cutter to draw patterns before doing it with scissors!
Most mats are made from slip-resistant rubber—making it ideal as shelf liners. Protect your ceramics from unwanted chipping by lining your kitchen with smaller yoga mats.
These are great for taking your morning coffee on-the-go or keeping kids from accidentally burning their fingers when holding warm sippy cups. Cut out strips from bright-colored mats to keep it fun!
If you find keeping fabric placemats clean quite difficult, cut-out extra yoga mats are great alternatives. These are also perfect for adding a pop of color to your table setting when you have guests over.
