Be a Good Spa Guest, Hot Tubs Tualatin

Isn’t it great to have friends with a hot tub at their house? That’s why we think it’s our duty to share some etiquette tips about soaking in a hot tub as a guest.

Bathing Suit Consideration
One of the easiest ways to mess up hot tub water chemistry is to hop in a tub with freshly laundered suits. The residual detergent will get into the water, causing foaming and in some cases cloudy water. Many detergents also contain phosphates, which can cause water to turn green the next day. If you plan to wear suits, run them through a rinse cycle in the washer and let them air dry.

Arrive fragrance/lotion free
Excessive lotions and other grooming products, like make-up and hair gel, also cause negative side effects to hot tub water. Try to remember to shower before heading over to your friend’s place, and resist the urge to use a lot of extra grooming products that can end up creating issues for your friend’s tub later. After soaking, feel free to moisturize away.

Bring a hot tub related gift
There are a lot of nice simple things that don’t cost much as a thank you gift for hot tub use: Plastic champagne flutes with Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider, a pair of plush towels, and hot tub aromatherapy are all relatively inexpensive, and a nice surprise when you arrive.

Bring your own towels
It’s nice to have your own towels with you, so you can use them for your after soak drying off and take them home when you leave. Have a great time! Nothing is more enjoyable than taking a hot tub with friends and chatting away…it’s really great fun!

Do You Sauna Like a Finn? Give it a Try! – Sauna Sale Portland, Oregon

Over the last fifty years Americans have become more and more enamored with taking a sauna. Yet, like many things that migrate from Europe, the sauna session for many is the Americanized version. With the temperatures dropping, it could be a great time to try taking a sauna like a true Finn!

First, you’ll need your sauna room hot
The minimum acceptable temperature would be 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Once in the sauna, you need to create humidity by ladling water onto your sauna rocks. The steam produced is absolutely necessary for an authentic Finnish sauna session.

Now, It’s Time to get out the birch tree whisks
Yes, you heard me right – you’ll need small branches from a young birch tree fashioned into a whisk. Proceed to lightly “swat” yourself with the birch whisk. Not only does this create an aromatic environment in the sauna, the beating increases circulation and encourages perspiration.

Next, it’s time for the cool down
Once you’ve completed your sauna session, it’s time for the cool down. This can be achieved in a variety of ways. For many, it’s attainable by jumping in a cold pool, lake or stream! If none of those are available, a cool shower is acceptable, as well as retreating outside to cool down in the crisp night air.

Ready to Give a Sauna Session the Authentic Finnish Way a Try? You’ll be Quite Surprised at How Terrific it Will Make You Feel!
