Keeping your Pilates Equipment Sanitary
Why alcohol based products will destroy your upholstery and Pilates Equipment.
Upholstery is a hard material by nature, therefore, during the manufacturing process the upholstery is softened with conditioning agents in order to make it feel pliable and useable.
Alcohol based cleaning products, will remove the softening agents and return the upholstery to its original state causing your vinyl to dry and crack. They can also cause deterioration to wood surfaces, as the chemicals attack and destroy the protective coating applied to the wood finish. These alcohol based products include agents like; baby wipes, alcohol based gym wipes, tea tree oil, window cleaner, eucalyptus oil, essential oils, or silicones.
How do I clean my Pilates Reformer Machine?
There are many non-alcohol based products out there that are designed to clean upholstery and kill germs or bacteria. For our Align Pilates Equipment we recommend the use of 2XL Gym Wipes.
