According to the American Journal of Infection Control, disinfectant wipes produced much better results when compared to spray-based disinfectants. It has been demonstrated that wipes are more effective and better for gym equipment. Modern pieces of cardio equipment have high operating computers and come equipped with monitors and entertainment systems. You would never spray liquids onto your home computer, leading to expensive repairs! And repairs aside, you’re here to kill germs!
Value of Wipes
There is no doubt that people prefer the convenience of wipes instead of sprays for just about any cleaning task these days. In several fitness surveys, over 90% of fitness members preferred using wipes to clean equipment to sprays or towels. Spays or towels do not disinfect and may spread more germs on the equipment. Wipes have shown that they produce better results and make it easily accessible for your members to wipe down equipment before and after their workout. In addition to convenience, wipes can help retain your members. For example, if you attract or maintain 5 members a year with an average membership due of $40 per month, your gym wipes would have paid for themselves!

Sprays and Towels
Paper and cloth towels are great for wiping sweat off your members’ body, but it’s superficial when it comes to cleaning of the equipment, since it does not disinfect. Cloth towels cost money with usage of the laundry equipment, utility bills (water and electric), and labor costs to maintain them!
The cleanliness of your facility is one of your members’ top priorities. Making wipes easily accessible for your members will encourages them to play a role your gym hygiene and, most importantly, keep them healthy and returning to your facility.
