Wipes, rubbing alcohol, windex and a soft towel...all of these approaches should be fine.

I'm pretty sure I was using an exercise ball at 300 pounds and it never popped. Unless there is a specific warning against it, I say go for it!

I'd put it in the shower and hose it off, then spray it with something if the dust is sticking, and rinse again.

Thanks for the help, I appreciate it. I know it was a silly question but I just wasn't sure.

I would do a dry dusting first, followed by a warm soap water bath (wipe down) and then a couple of clear water rinses to get the soap off. I don't see why you'd have to use any special wipe for germs or bacteria if it just sat in a hallway. That, plus soap itself is "antibacterial".

My gym uses wipes and I do, too, at home. The gym's balls are used quite regularly and wiped down with the industrial gym-strength wipes. And I have been using the gym for about 7 years. They haven't broken down or popped.

I bought one about two years ago, used for a couple of months and then stopped. It has been sitting in my front hall ever since collecting dust. I know weigh to much to use it but would like to when I get down to the suggested weight. My question is what would be safe to use to clean it off? It needs more then a dry dusting but I am afraid to use any chemicals for fear it will weaken the ball. Thanks for your help.
