You should really never use bleach to clean equipment, especially mats because it can be very damaging to the material. Bleach is corrosive and will fade out and ruin equipment and mats. Bleach is also just not as effective because it doesn’t kill mold or fungus. Besides this, inhaling bleach fumes can be very dangerous to someone’s respiratory system and can be a skin irritant. Anti3 Protect Series products are specifically formulated to cleanse equipment and mats without damaging them or leaving a residue.
