Ummm... there's a difference between not cleaning the mats regularly and not cleaning the mats at all.

Tell your instructor that it's a health risk, but you really should get that cleaned.

Staph is a b*tch, and if one guy in the gym gets it, it'll only take three or four weeks for half the gym to get it.
