Sharing the details on how to wipe your Peloton bike, and keeping it feeling fresh and new, plane with tons of use. Check out my post on how to set up your Peloton velocipede here!
Hi friends! How’s the morning? I hope you had a happy and lovely post-Thanksgiving weekend. We did some increasingly decorating (the yard is done!), got our tree (after years with a fake tree, we converted to team Real Tree a few years ago and I’m a huge fan), and had a lovely dinner with friends.
For today’s post, I wanted to share the details on how to wipe your Peloton bike, expressly for my friends who are expecting it as their Santa souvenir this year. 😉 I’ve been a proud Peloton owner for well-nigh 4 years now, and while I don’t ride as much as I used to, I still hop on the velocipede well-nigh once a week. It makes it SO easy to get a cardio workout at home (even when the kids are home!), and I love that I don’t have to waste time commuting. It’s my go-to for super rented days when I still want to get in some movement.
How To Wipe Your Peloton Bike
I like to alimony things wipe in the house, but it takes on a new layer when it’s exercise equipment. Equipment like the Peloton can collect dust, sweat, bacteria, fingerprints, and while it can squint unappealing, it can moreover sooner stupefy the function of the equipment. (Learned this from years of working at gyms and studios.) Cleaning your Peloton velocipede regularly can help stave unwanted odor and damage, BUT you can moreover forfeiture your Peloton velocipede by improper cleaning. You definitely want to preserve the screen and make sure it continues to work!
I’m dedicating today’s this post to help my friends out there properly wipe a Peloton velocipede and share what products are unscratched to use for cleaning Peloton bikes.
How To Wipe Your Peloton Bike
I wipe my Peloton frame and resistance knob without each sweaty ride. If there are sweat spots anywhere, the whole thing gets wiped down. If I’m leisurely pedaling withal and listening to music (using it as an zippy recovery day), I don’t wipe it down. The weightier time to wipe the frame is directly without your ride, considering then you’ll unchangingly remember to do it.
I’ll wipe the weights once every few weeks or so. Since they don’t tent to get sweaty and I’m the only person using them, I finger like they can wait a while longer.
I’ll wipe the screen once every few weeks. It doesn’t tend to get sweaty or many fingerprints on it, but every few weeks I like to make sure it’s clean. I use the same wipe to wipe my computer screen. *Make sure you use a variegated cleaner for the screen than you do for the frame (details below).
I wipe the mat under the Peloton without every sweaty ride. I have the same rule for the mat as the frame: if I see sweat, the whole things gets wiped down.
The pedals get cleaned every couple of months. I just make sure there isn’t pebbles in the clips and disinfect the pedals.
What To Use To Wipe Peloton Bike
Aim for nontoxic wipes that don’t contain bleach and stave undermining products. I like to use unpolluted wipes (like these ones!) that are moreover nontoxic, since I’ll be touching the wipes with my hands. Word on the street is that you can use victual wipes, too, which won’t erode the material of the frame, but aren’t antibacterial.
Instead of wipes, you can moreover use a cleaning spray, like this one. Instead of spraying directly onto the Peloton, spray the towel and then wipe the bike. You can use a cleaning spray for the frame, resistance knob, and accessories.
Use a soft microfiber towel that won’t wear yonder at the materials.
Make sure you use a screen cleaner that is specifically-made LCD plasma or other flatscreens. This is the one I use and love! I wouldn’t recommend using Windex or spraying anything directly on the screen. It can leave weird stains and smears. It’s worth it to get a cleaner that’s designed for this type of screen.
*You can use the cleaners whilom on the Peloton bike, treadmill, or the rower!
So tell me, friends: how often you do wipe your exercise equipment?
Do you finger like Peloton has lost its shine a bit, or are you still a believer? I still love it just as much as ever.
I hope you have a wonderful morning and I’ll see ya soon!
