Today, Raw Athletics and Vapor Fresh launched a new product, the third product in the Vapor Fresh family of cleaning supplies– disinfecting gym wipes! Vapor Fresh® Disinfecting Gym Wipes is a next-generation gym wipe that saves gyms money and keeps gyms cleaner.
Most other gym wipes out there use one of three class of chemicals– bleach, quaternary ammonium compounds or phenols. These chemicals have been shown to cause numerous problems:
Chemicals in other gym wipes that are NOT in Vapor Fresh® Disinfecting Gym Wipes
ortho-Phenylphenol: Association of Occupational and Environmental Clinic has determined that ortho-Phenylphenol can cause new cases of asthma via respiratory sensitization, and also a recognized carcinogen by the State of California.
Chlorine Bleach (Sodium hypochlorite): EPA requires the strongest warning statement, “DANGER: CORROSIVE. Causes irreversible eye damage and skin burns.” Four different state health departments also conducted a small study and found that bleach products contributed to 43 new cases of asthma, mainly the custodial staff using them. It’s also very corrosive and can damage surfaces.
Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (Quats): Also a respiratory sensitizer and can cause new cases of asthma. It’s classified by the EPA as a “severe skin and eye irritant”. They also tend to not degrade, and therefore concentrate in sewage systems. Because they are also highly toxic to fish, this poses a very serious environmental threat.
