A DIY Spray to Stay Germ-Free at the Gym (and Everywhere Else, Too)

With all that sweat and germs hanging out at the gym and yoga studio, your workout gear can get dirty, moldy, and smelly. So to fight sickness and ickiness on all your gym stuff, keep a small spray bottle of germ-fighting essential-oil-infused water in your gym or studio bag.

This simple spray recipe uses tea tree and lavender oils, which are a great eco-friendly way to keep your gym equipment germ-free. Tea tree oil has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties to effectively fight germs, while the scent of lavender oil helps you relax and relieve tension — especially important after a workout.

To make this DIY germ-fighting spray, you'll need a small, clean spray bottle that seals tightly along with pure tea tree and lavender essential oils. Fill the spray bottle with distilled or spring water, and add one or two drops of tea tree oil, plus another drop of lavender oil. Throw the bottle in your bag, and spray down your gym bag, shoes, and yoga mat when you're done or whenever you're feeling like your gym stuff could use some extra attention. Just be sure to wipe everything down and spray in a well-ventilated area away from anyone in case they are sensitive to the smell.
