How To Properly Disinfect Your Yoga or Pilates Studio
If you run a yoga or pilates studio, you know that we all need the chance to stretch, breathe and focus on ourselves – now more than ever! That said, it’s hard to relax and rejuvenate when we’re worried about the spread of sickness-causing germs, especially with there being disinfectant shortages and price-gouging – and some pretty hazardous ingredients in many disinfectants, too. Luckily, you’ve got Force of Nature on your side! Here’s how you can use our revolutionary cleaning system to make your own disinfectant on-demand to use to disinfect your yoga or pilates studio (without exposing your clients to scary toxins!).
10 Ways To Use Force of Nature To Disinfect Your Yoga or Pilates Studio
Between the sweating and heavy breathing, it’s critical to disinfect yoga and pilates studios to keep their surfaces and equipment clean for your clients. Sadly, the cleaning and disinfecting product category is poorly regulated, and there is no guarantee that chemicals included in these products are safe for us to touch or breathe in. Many common ingredients like alcohol, ammonia, and bleach are toxic to the health of your clients and can impact the lifespan of your valuable equipment and machinery. Cleaning products can cause corrosion and wear down your equipment at a huge cost to your company, but Force of Nature is safe to use on even porous surfaces like marble and stone, and can be used to disinfect and sanitize almost virtually any surface without worrying about causing damage or corrosion.
1. Yoga and Exercise Mats
Sweaty mats are a germ-fostering environment! Traditional cleaning solutions can cause real damage to these mats and can also void warranties. Force of Nature is safe to use on yoga and pilates mats without causing damage. Even worse, the chemicals left behind by these abrasive products need to be rinsed off to avoid irritating your skin and respiratory systems when you then use the mat for your practice.
To use Force of Nature to clean your mats, just spray them down, then let them air dry naturally.
2. Studio Floors
Floors and mats don’t just harbor viruses, they can allow for the spread of conditions like athletes’ feet and ringworm. Gross! Force of Nature is safe to use on hard flooring as a disinfectant and sanitizer. One solution we love: filling the canister of a refillable spray mop which you can then use to mop the flooring throughout your business. You don’t have to rinse after you’ve mopped, which is a great time-saver.
3. Exercise Equipment and Props
From reformer equipment to stretching racks and barres, your studio is filled with equipment that you may not even think about needing to disinfect. Force of Nature can help you clean the sickness-causing germs on the surfaces of:
- Yoga blocks
- Yoga straps
- Weighted balls
- Rings and bars
Simply spray down exercise equipment and let dry naturally.
4. Locker Room Lockers and Benches
Locker rooms are an important place to keep clean, sanitized and disinfected. The warm, humid air can provide an environment for germs and bacteria to grow and thrive. They can also harbor odors from sweaty athletic gear and lack of ventilation. Having a clean and fresh-smelling locker room helps promote your image as a high-end facility. You can use Force of Nature to clean, disinfect and deodorize your locker room.
- Clean and disinfect lockers by spraying down the interior and combination lock, handle and door with Force of Nature to reduce germs and eliminate trapped odors.
- Mop floor with Force of Nature to eliminate bacteria and germs from shoes and bare feet.
- Spray benches and countertops with Force of Nature.
5. Hair Dryers and other Group-Use Items
Any shared items should be cleaned and disinfected between uses. Spray a paper towel with Force of Nature and use it to wipe down hair dryer handles and any other high-touch items or shared accessories in your locker room. Always unplug and turn off any electric or battery-operated items before cleaning and never spray directly onto the item – use a clean paper towel that has been sprayed with Force of Nature instead.
6. Sanitize Shared Technology
With client scheduling and studio shop purchases, a lot of people can come into contact with your shared technology – making it a great place to transfer germs and bacteria. Force of Nature is gentle enough to clean your gadgets like computers, keyboards, mouse devices, trackpads, and tablets. Spray a paper towel of soft cloth with Force of Nature and then wipe the devices to avoid excess moisture getting into the tech!
7. High-Touch Areas
Force of Nature can be sprayed on high-touch areas that your staff and clients are coming into contact with often. These areas include doorknobs and handles, cabinet handles and pulls, faucets, light switches, stair railings and drawer pulls. To keep them clean and disinfected, use a generous spray of Force of Nature and let them air dry naturally.
8. Spot-Treat Stains
From makeup stains on washcloths to spills and wear and tear, Force of Nature can help you spot-treat stains by saturating with Force of Nature and letting them dry before washing. Always check an inconspicuous spot first to make sure they dyes used were colorfast, just in case!
9. Employee lounge or shared space
Keeping your employees safe is just as important as protecting your clients from sickness-causing germs. If you have an employee lounge, backroom, or shared space, make sure it’s clean and disinfected for your team. You can use Force of Nature on all kinds of surfaces from tables and chairs to microwave handles and fridge doors. Just spray them down and let them air dry naturally.
10. Waiting Room
Keeping your waiting room clean, uncluttered, and disinfected is important during a pandemic and always! Try to limit the number of accessories and items and eliminate shared items like pens and water coolers or coffee areas. If you have to provide these, use Force of Nature to keep them disinfected and clean by spraying and then letting them air dry – no need to rinse or wipe.
