I got a cheap Minoura trainer mat two years ago, and for some reason the thing is not water, well, sweat proof. Instead, it became like a sponge that soaks up all my sweay goodness. It even retained some of the bath cleaner I used to get rid of the smell. So it acquired an odor, shall we say, even though I did my best to wipe down everything after every trainer ride.
I’d like to replace it. Do you have some recommendations? I’ve seen yoga mats thrown around, but these are even spongier, me thinks.
PS My trainer mat rests on spongy rubber tiles to absorb the vibrations and make sure my downstairs neighbors have a good rest.
