Infrared saunas are a hot topic these days, and since being in the industry for over 5 years I’ve had the pleasure of being an experienced sauna user. Many of my customers ask me many questions, and the most prominent as of late is HOW DO I CLEAN MY SAUNA?
There are many ways to clean it, so really there’s no particular way I recommend over another except what I DON’T recommend. Here’s a few tips on what NOT to do when cleaning your sauna.
- Don’t use synthetic chemicals. Not only is this not good for your health to breath in, it’s not the best for the wood. This should be a last resort. As long as you maintain your sauna and use it regularly, the heat will keep the wood clean most of the time.
- DO NOT SPRAY the emitters. Although natural cleaners that don’t have harsh chemicals are less likely to break down the infrared emitters, over time it is still possible. Make sure when you spray it doesn’t go on the emitters.
If in doubt, watch the video below and I’ll explain.
Also, I promised the Sauna cleaner I recommend is from Neal’s Yard Remedies which is all organic. They are also the only manufacturer that is 100% green and eco-friendly. Talk about a mission that is in caring for the environment, these people do it right. Order some HERE.
