How To Clean Lipo Foam Pads

So you’ve just finished your first session on your brand-new Lipo foam pads. You feel amazing, and you can’t wait to do it again tomorrow. But before you rush home to do that, there are a few things you need to take care of first. Mainly, you will want to give your pad a good cleaning before storing it for the night. If not, chances are slim that you will want to use them again anytime soon. A dirty foam pad is about as welcome as an unexpected house guest who won’t leave after several polite requests.

How To Clean Lipo Foam Pads

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to clean lipo foam pads correctly and efficiently:

Step 1: Check The Battery Connections

The first thing you want to do is check the battery connections. Make sure that they are properly connected and there is no dust or debris inside the connector. Otherwise, you risk damaging the battery and the foam pad, which can lead to an unpleasant odor and a very bad experience. If you find anything inside the connectors, use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to clean it out. Be careful not to get any of the alcohol inside the connector, as it can cause corrosion. If there is a lot of dust, wipe it off with a paper towel and some rubbing alcohol.

Step 2: Turn the Foam Pad over

Next, turn the foam pad over and inspect the bottom side of the pad. Look for any signs of damage, such as tears in the foam or cuts in the material. If damaged, you will have to get a new pad. If there is no damage, but there is a lot of dirt and debris on the bottom of the pad, you can use a wet paper towel to wipe it off.

Step 3: Scrub With a Shower Comb

You can use a shower comb to scrub the outer surface of the pad. Make sure to clean the foam on the pad of all dirt and debris. When you are done cleaning the pad, you can use the comb to comb through your hair as well. If you don’t have a shower comb, you can also use a toothbrush or some other kind of cleaning brush.

Step 4: Use Shaving Foam (Optional)

While this may not be the ideal option, it is usually the best way to deal with excess dirt and debris on your pad. If there is a lot of build-up, you will want to use shaving soap or shaving cream to clean the foam. When you are done cleaning the pad, you can use a dry cloth to wipe off the shaving soap before putting the pad away. Make sure the pad is completely dry before storing it. If there is any moisture inside the pad, it will lead to the growth of mold and mildew. This will not only be a huge health hazard, but it will also infect the rest of your gear and lead to a very bad odor.

Step 5: Rinse and Air Dry Your Foam Pads

When all the dirt and debris are gone, you can use clean water to rinse off the pad. Make sure the water is not too hot, as this can damage the pad. Use cold water to rinse off the pad, and then let it air dry. You can put it on a clean towel or a rack to let the excess water drip off. Once the pad is completely dry, you can store it in the bag it came in. If there is no bag included with the foam pad, you can wrap the pad in a clean cloth or place it inside a pillowcase. Just make sure you do not store it in its original packaging, as this will retain the smell of sweat and dirt.

Conclusion

Cleaning your foam pads correctly and thoroughly is the key to making sure they will last and remain in good condition. The last thing you want to do is store a dirty pad, as this will lead to the growth of mold and bacteria. If you don’t clean your pad regularly, the smell will intensify and make the foam pad almost unusable. When you clean your foam pad regularly, you are also preserving your health. Bacteria and other microorganisms can easily build up on your pad. If you do not regularly clean your pad, you can transfer these microorganisms to your skin and cause an infection.
