View Full Version : How to clean up chalk at home gym?

I just got some chalk for my home gym and am enjoying the stuff thus far. I was curious about how to clean it up. I'm planning on let everything sit around chalky for a weeks at a time, but I figure ever couple months I'll want to clean the place up.

Do I just rub down bars with washcloth and follow-up with a towel? What about the floor - do you just sweep then mop (I have rubber mats over concrete)? Can you vacuum the stuff or is it too fine?

Should I be doing anything after my workout? I usually just casually wipe stuff down so there isn't pools of sweat everywhere (I'm a sweathog).

Not a big deal but I thought I'd be prepared for when the wife sees the chalky mess and freaks.

Vaccum, if possible. Sweeping is basically worthless as it just swirls it around. Then use a wet towel on everything.

You're supposed to clean it? It's a gym, it should have chalk everywhere. ;)
