As a Peloton rider, you know the importance of properly maintaining your Peloton to maximize the life of this valuable piece of home gym equipment. Peloton shoes, in particular, are bulky and difficult to wash. Online forums suggest using a damp cloth or toothbrush so you don’t damage your shoes, but this just doesn’t cut it when you are dealing with built-up odors.
Here at Vapor Fresh we pride ourselves on developing cleaning products strong enough for your active lifestyle yet safe and gentle for your body and the environment. Peloton shoes are tough when it comes to odors, but don’t worry, we have you covered!
Follow these instructions to get a consistent, powerful clean for your Peloton shoes:
Odor Prevention Is The Name Of The Game
As you are well-aware, workout shoes are tough to clean. Dirt, sweat and moisture pool up and collect over time, causing foul smells. However, Peloton shoes take this to another level. Stay one step ahead of odors by taking these steps to properly clean your shoes.
Remove your Peloton shoes as soon as you are finished with your ride. Odor and bacteria thrive in dark, moist environments, so move them to a place with ample airflow, which will encourage ventilation and bust up foul smells. If possible, put shoes outside in a cool place protected from the sun.
Spray Down Your Peloton Shoes After Use
The next step is to properly deodorize your shoes before odors grow. You can do this by spraying down shoes with Vapor Fresh Natural Sports Cleaning And Deodorizing Spray after each use. Allow them to dry, preferably in a well-ventilated place.
With Vapor Fresh, you don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals-- Vapor Fresh Natural Cleaning Spray is non-toxic and uses 100% all-natural botanical active ingredients. It is safe enough for everyday use, yet strong enough to combat the strongest stink. Stay one step ahead of your cleaning and expect a fresh workout every time.
Sprinkle Shoe Powder Occasionally In Your Peloton Shoes
You have probably heard of the recent health concerns from long term exposure to talc powder. Vapor Fresh Natural Shoe Powder is talc-free and made with 100% all-natural ingredients so it’s safe to use on a regular basis. Just sprinkle the powder into your Peloton shoes when you need some extra power to eliminate moisture and odor, or if you know you’re storing your Peloton shoes for a while before next use. The odor-busting shoe powder soaks up moisture and prolongs the life of your equipment.
Don’t Forget to Deep Clean Your Peloton Shoes
Even with regular preventative cleaning, you’ll find that your Peloton shoes will require a deep and thorough cleaning. To do this, follow these easy steps:
- Remove insoles
- Grab a bucket or large bowl.
- Mix some water with mild soap or a tiny amount of a sports laundry detergent powder.
- Soak your shoes and insoles in the soapy water and scrub with a sponge or soft-bristle brush.
- Rinse under running water and allow to dry as soon as possible.
All Vapor Fresh laundry detergents are free from fragrances, dyes, brighteners or softeners that can irritate skin and reduce the life of your shoes.
