Keeping your punching bag clean and tidy requires regular maintenance and cleaning to ensure its durability and durability. Punching bags are usually made of two materials: leather or synthetic leather. (Leather sandbags are admired for their durability and overall quality.) They’re cleaned in much the same way: keep away from moisture as much as possible; don’t soak them in water, and don’t use the washer and dryer.
1. Wipe the punching bag after each use.
① After use, you can wipe the bag with a damp cloth.
② Disinfectant wipes can also wipe the bag.
③ It hangs in the open air to dry (in case the bag is stored somewhere after use).
④Do not place it in direct sunlight.
2. Thoroughly clean punching bags once a week.
① For weekly bag cleaning, you need an antibacterial spray. Spray the bag and wipe it clean with a towel.
② You can also use DIY vinegar and water solution to wipe the bag; put 1 tablespoon of vinegar into a glass of water and mix well. Put the solution in a spray bottle, spray it on the punching bag, and wipe it with a towel.
③ You can also use apple cider vinegar, but after using apple cider vinegar, please wipe the bag with a damp cloth.
④ Use leather cleaners, traditional leather cleaners can be bought in stores, they can restore the leather’s natural oils and prevent cracking.
⑤ After each cleaning method, it must be dried in a well-ventilated place. Keep away from sunlight or other heat sources.
3. Double check the punching bag once a week for damage.
①Check the leather for cracks. If the cracks are small, use the leather treatment solutions above. If there is already a big rip, then the punching bag needs to be replaced.
② You must check the stitching of the punching bag. Sandbags can take a lot of weight, plus regular hits, and if it’s not cared for properly, the stitches can come loose. Assess for loose stitches and decide if your sandbag needs to be replaced.
③ Look at the base, wall or ceiling of the punching bag. Continuous motion can cause the bracket to loosen. Check nuts, bolts and screws and tighten as needed.
④ The chains of punching bags also need to be checked. If the chain breaks during a workout, the sandbag can fall off and cause injury to the trainer.
