How to Properly Clean Your Whirlpool Bath
Whirlpool baths are a great way to find relaxation time in your home. Soaking in the tub will make you forget anything that is troubling you and help you find calm and peace within yourself. But, to fully enjoy your bath time, you should make sure that it is clean and safe to use. Whirlpool baths are harder to clean than standard bathtubs. You have to remember to get in between nooks and crannies. Cleaning the jets and hydro pumps are also a must. You need to put your back into it and use some elbow grease to keep yours in mint condition. You need to have it regularly cleaned especially if you frequently use your tub. Down below is a step by step guide showing you the way to a shiny and sparkling whirlpool bath. Check it out:
You can begin the process by filling your tub with hot water. Add a cup of powdered detergent and a half cup of vinegar. Let this sit for about 20 minutes so that it can break up any greasy substance coming from your soap and bubble bath residue while it simultaneously disinfects the whole area. Don’t use any harsh chemicals like bleach. Bleach can damage the surface of bathtubs. You should be careful when using it.
After the 20 minutes is up, you should turn on the jets at full capacity to make the water pulsate. Allow it to run for about 10-15 minutes to make sure that the tub is thoroughly clean.
Drain and rinse
Drain the water and empty the tub. Use the shower head to rinse the whole area and make sure that you aim the water at the jets to get all the remaining residue out. Use a soft-bristled brush for stubborn grime and dirt that is sticking to your bathtub. Especially if you are going to reach into the crevices of the jets, you should make use of brushes. Toothbrushes are the ideal tool for this task. You can easily get out any particles hiding inside with these.
A humid environment is your enemy when it comes to wet areas such as bathtubs. It can encourage the growth of moulds and bacteria formation. You should make sure that you wipe every surface of the bath, including the water spills on the floor (if any).
Now, these are the three steps you need to follow so that you can maintain a beautiful and fresh whirlpool bathtub. If you want the cleaning routine to become quicker in the future, here are some tips:
- Don’t use too much bubble bath with a whirlpool. It can create more foam and make a huge mess in the bathroom in combination with the pulsating jets.
- It pays to clean up after yourself after each use. Just rinse off the walls of the tub to completely drain any soap suds and wipe the surface dry.
These tips will make sure that you will always have a pleasant bathing experience to look forward to every time.
