At lots of health clubs and gyms, you'll find overflowing trash cans with used antibacterial wipes from wiping down equipment. But is all this waste actually doing any good to help you stay healthy? The reality is that if you belong to a gym that has a regular cleaning schedule, using wipes is unnecessary. All you have to do is follow simple tips to stay healthy: Use a towel on workout benches or to wipe off handles after a workout. Never touch your face with your hands to avoid infection. And finally, wash your hands immediately after working out.
