How To Get The Stinky Sweat Smell Out Of Your FuelBand, Fitbit or Jawbone UP

May 19, 2015 by Justine Schwartz

I love my limited-edition rose gold Nike FuelBand (heyyy!) and wear it every day, but my only issue is that it starts to stink after a week or so. It just starts to smell like a wet towel–musky and little bit like sweat and body odor (I DO work out in it, after all). I wasn’t sure exactly how to clean it since it’s a piece of technology (you wouldn’t wash your phone, right?) but Nike had really clear instructions for doing so on their website. I tried them and they really work–see below!

If you don’t have a FuelBand, it turns out it’s really easy to clean any kind of fitness tracker. Generally speaking, you should use a soft cloth with either mild soap, gentle cleanser or rubbing alcohol, but here is a breakdown with specific cleaning tips for each:

Nike FuelBand:

-To clean the band, wet a soft cloth with mild soap and tepid water. Do not use solvents (household cleaners, nail polisher remover, etc.) or detergents–they can wear away the rubber. Lay out on a dry cloth or towel and let air dry.

-To clean the USB connector/claps, use a clean, dry toothbrush or a clean cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol. Wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth or towel then air dry thoroughly.

Fitbit:

-To clean the wristband, remove the Flex tracker and then use warm water and mild detergent to hand wash the band. Air dry completely.

-To clean the tracker, use a cotton swab dampened with rubbing alcohol. Air dry completely before putting the tracker back in the wristband.

Jawbone:

-Dampen a clean cloth or cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol or an alcohol-based sanitizer and gently rub the band. Dry with a clean cloth or towel. Do not submerge the band in liquids or use abrasive cleaners or solvents.
