Use a microfiber cloth to clean the console screen and the buttons. You should not use any water here. For excess dirt on the rubber surface or other non-electronic parts, you can use just a wet cloth to rub the dirt off.

Keep up a maintenance schedule, so you can prevent the accumulation of dirt away. A cleaning cloth, 15 minutes of time per week or two should keep the dirt away.

Actually, you can do this with all of your gym equipment as well. 


Can you use wd40 on a treadmill belt?

No, WD40 is not suitable for use on a treadmill belt. It can be used to clean other metal surfaces, but it won’t do any good when cleaning the belt of your treadmill or exercise equipment because there are no bearings or moving parts like in most machines.

How do you clean a moldy treadmill?

To clean your treadmill belt, use a larger towel than the width of your running belt and cover the whole underside. Scrubbing in small circles with a sponge is ideal to get into all spaces and remove any dirt or debris from the underside.
If more cleaning is required, use toothpaste on a damp cloth to scrub away tough spots.
The cleaning needs to be done every three months so it doesn’t become moldy again, but this will depend on how often you run on it.

Yo Friends, this is Samarjit! A skinny guy who is building his tiny home gym.

I have successfully gained 10 kgs in 10 months going to commercial gyms. And I have been working out on and off for about 10+ years now.

I have gone swimming, done martial arts, Olympic lifts and body-building-type workouts!

I canceled the gym subscription as I was more into making my home gym for workouts. And getting ready, then getting my cycle and ride to the commercial gym seemed a drag after 10 hours in the office.

Thus, I needed a home that I could access at any moment!
And I started building my home gym!

I had to research a lot to build my home gym and decided to share effective, budget-friendly home gym machines, and nutrition to buy as per your goals here in
