The mat also helps reduce tension and soreness on the legs, knees, and back. It helps cushion joints during long sessions. Cleaning the mat as easy as using a wash cloth or wet wipe to clean the mat. I am currently using the mat next to the kitchen sink, but will probably exchange it with my other mat that I use for as a standing mat.
Overall, the mat is a great item to have on hand if you have a back injury, knee issues, or feet and leg pain. The design complements the kitchen and is lightweight and easy to store.
