How to Clean a Peloton

Keep your Peloton Bike squeaky clean with these quick and easy steps.
5 minutes

You’ve crushed another workout on your Peloton and finished your post-ride stretch, but there’s one more job to do: clean the bike.

If you’re exercising on a Peloton Bike, cleaning will quickly become a part of your routine. It is best to disinfect your bike after every use. Wiping down the bike post-workout helps to:

  • Get rid of sweat
  • Keep unwelcome odors away
  • Keep your bike in pristine condition
  • Eliminate any corrosion caused by sweat and water
  • Keep germs and bacteria away (especially important if you're sharing the bike with anyone else)

Of course, there's more than one way to clean a Peloton Bike. Sometimes a quick wipe down will do the job, while other times you'll need to pull out some basic cleaning tools to do the trick. When my Peloton Bike was delivered and assembled, a once-over with baby wipes was all that was recommended for routine cleaning.

But if you’re looking to make your Peloton sparkle, follow the steps below. And as a bonus, once your Peleton is completely clean, make sure you have every Peloton accessory you need, and that your bike is connected to your Apple Watch and your favorite Spotify playlist.

Vacuum any dust or debris before wiping down the Peloton Bike

Depending on the amount of dust, debris, or pet hair you have floating around your home workout space, it may be helpful to begin by vacuuming the Peloton Bike frame and floor mat.

Using a handheld vacuum or vacuum with a hose attachment, vacuum the bike's surface area to remove any built-up dust (or in my case, pet hair). This step will prevent you from simply moving dust and pet hair around as you clean.

You can also vacuum the open space around the flywheel at the front of the bike to remove any dust or debris that may have crept in. This will keep the bike moving smoothly as time goes on.

Wipe the Peloton Bike frame with an all-purpose cleaner and microfiber cloth

After removing any visible dust and debris, use an all-purpose cleaner and a microfiber cloth to clean the Peloton Bike.

Spray the cleaner directly on the microfiber cloth, not on the Peloton frame itself, as you clean. Wipe all of the bike's surface area, paying special attention to any areas that you touch with your hands as you ride, such as the handlebars and the resistance knob.

Do not use soap and water when cleaning the bike frame, and make sure to dry thoroughly after every cleaning.

Wipe down the Peloton Bike's touchscreen

Finish your Peloton detailing by cleaning the Peloton Bike touch screen.

It is recommended that you turn off the touchscreen by holding down the power button at the top of the tablet. Spray a microfiber cloth with an electronics screen cleaner and wipe away any streaks, fingerprints, or smears on the Peloton's touch screen.

We recommend you clean yours out at least once a month!

As I wrote my guide on setting the delay on a Mr. Coffee maker, I noticed that my coffee maker could really use a good cleaning. It was rather embarrassing!
