5 DIY Natural Cleaning Recipes for a Green and Clean Workout - Infographic

Did you know that gym equipment can harbor thousands of germs, acting as a hotbed of bacteria

that can be harmful to your health?

In fact, some of the bacteria that can live on your gym equipment include rhinoviruses, klebsiella,

and streptococcal bacteria.

These nasty germs can hide on your weights, mats, and equipment such as treadmills and ellipticals.

The irony is that we go to the gym to maintain our health and fitness, but we need to take precautions

to protect ourselves from infections and viruses.

Sure, your gym provides sanitizing foams, liquids and gels as well as sanitary wipes, but I’m not too

keen on using them to clean my equpment.

They are full of harsh chemicals which I prefer to avoid–and you should too!

A better way to clean gym equipment is to make our own natural cleaning products and carry them

in our gym bags.
