What do you guys use to clean your bars? bleach?
Latley, i've been tearing my hands up while deadlifting and i'm leaving blood all over my bar. Just curious what to use to clean it, that won't ruin it.
Methylated spirits and a wire brush is what I use also.

Alcohol..... and a light wire brush
I use Lysol, you could always wear glo.. I couldn't even finish that sentence hahhahah
Also if I'm starting to tear a callus I'll use paper tape I think it's called across them it helps and also keeps chalk out of them and it's thin enough it won't affect your grip
Be very carful you don't get one of your cuts infected if you're leaving that much blood on the bar every week. Those things can get really nasty.
But yeah alcohol and a wire brush is good.
@Travis-Trust me I know. A couple years ago, I tore a callous and I got a pretty bad infection. I really don't want to go through all that again, lol.
