Do you workout? If you do then chances are you have equipment in your home which you use on days when you don’t feel like going to the gym!
You don’t like going to the gym? Me too! I prefer working out from home. If you do prefer working our from home as well then your workout gear is probably extremely dirty and is in desperate need of a good disinfect! Do you know how much bacteria is breeding on your dumbbells? Yes, your dumbbells are indeed dirtier than the average toilet seat – I said it!
I know you wash your workout clothes after each session, however, that is simply not enough!
Here is how to disinfect your workout gear!
You need to use a powerful disinfectant. I use a spray. I also don’t recommend using disinfectant wipes – you need something even stronger.
Now, grab a spray bottle and mix the following:
- 1/4 cup of white vinegar
- 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol
- 1/4 cup of water
- 20 drops of your favourite essential oil
Give the ingredients a good shake and your all-purpose disinfectant is ready.
Now, all you need to do is spray your workout equipment and allow it to dry completely. Don’t wipe it or anything like that – a disinfectant should be sprayed and allowed to air dry in order to work properly!
