I found myself with a torn callus a few days ago and thought it would be the opportune time to put together a bar (equipment) cleaning tutorial for all of you. Some of you know that we keep bleach and a brush on hand for these incidents, some of you may not. If you find that you've torn a callus or scraped a shin and got some blood on the pull up rack or a barbell, its up to you to clean it up.
Grab the bleach bottle and brush, currently, these are kept under the WOD whiteboard.
Spray some bleach on the bar.
Run the brush perpindicular to the bar, scrubbing until all the blood is gone.
If you leave any residue on the floor, clean that up with a paper towel.
Once the bar is clean, be sure to bring the brush into the bathroom, spray it with bleach, and rinse it out before returning it to its resting place under the whiteboard.
Thanks for reading and for taking care of the equipment at your gym!
