Whether you have a large spa sauna or a personal sauna in your home, over time you will notice an odor from normal use that is caused by sweat, body odor and other elements. The steam from the sauna can cause such an odor to be stronger than in other environments, making it hard to relax. To keep the sauna smelling fresh, follow a few simple tips.
Things You'll Need
- Stiff cleaning brush
- TSP (tri-sodium phosphate)
Mix 1 gallon hot water with 1/4 cup TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) and 1/4 cup bleach.
Dip a mop into the cleaning solution, wring it out and mop across the floor of the sauna.
Saturate a stiff cleaning brush in the solution, and scrub across the seats of the sauna.
Turn on the sauna and allow the heat to dry the wood.
Prop the sauna door open for a few hours to let the bleach odor dissipate.
Tips & Warnings
- Mopping the sauna regularly collects residue and defends against unpleasant odors.
