Using a Sauna to relax is great but spending time in a sauna which has been used by a person just a couple of minutes back is just gross!You don’t know which surface area of the sauna they used for sitting down and where their dirty skin cells might be lying around, you might even want to get a personal infrared sauna for your home. In such cases, instead of getting rid of the dirt and toxins in the sauna, you are more likely to get stuck in someone else’s dirt and toxins.

This is why it is important to keep your Sauna clean at all times, both for your health and your mental peace. Here is how you can clean your Sauna in just a few steps!
Scrubbing the benches and the walls after each use
After each use, make it a point to clean the benches, walls, backrests, etc. with water. Just use a wet brush to scrub the places where you or anyone else has sat down and then rinse it with water.
Removing the stains
If you notice any kind of sweat stains in the sauna, then take a brush and use a solution of warm water and detergent to scrub the stain out of the wood. To avoid these stains, make sure that all members using the sauna use a towel beneath them and if the stains are particularly hard to remove, just use a sandpaper to sand that part of the wood.
Vacuuming the floor
Make sure that you vacuum your sauna floor daily to pick up any loose hair or dirt that might be lying around. This will ensure that nothing dirty will stick to your feet when you are using the sauna later.
Rinsing out the sauna regularly
Make sure that you rinse your sauna interiors with a mild detergent and water hose. Don’t forget to cover all the corners of the sauna and try to do it on a daily basis. Don’t use a strong cleaning solution as it could damage your sauna wood but a mild cleaning agent will work perfectly.
Sanding the benches once every year
Although you can do this step as often as you want, it is particularly important to do this task at least once every year. This is a great way to get rid of any impurities and dirt that might have gotten stuck to the benches and is a good opportunity to smooth out the surface again.
Cleaning out the mold
If you notice a mold growing in the sauna, get rid of it immediately. You can use a bleach solution or the sauna cleaning solution to achieve this task.
Moping the floor
Another important step in cleaning your sauna is to mop it with an aromatic cleaner so as to get rid of the odor left by the people when using the sauna. Make sure you don’t use a harsh chemical for mopping the floor.
Clean the exterior of the sauna
Every once a week, you can clean the exterior of your sauna by using a pressure washer to water your sauna. This is particularly useful if you have an outdoor sauna and will increase the looks of your sauna. Don’t use the pressure washer inside as the wood inside is softer.
