How do I clean my Rocky Mountain Sauna?

Cleaning an Infrared Sauna is Easy

Clean the interior of your personal infrared sauna often to keep a fresh and well maintained appearance.

  • Periodically, vacuum your home sauna floor and bench areas with a crevice tool to remove hair and dirt.
  • Use a diluted solution of white vinegar and water on a damp cloth or sponge to wipe sweaty areas like seat and backrests. (5 or 6 tablespoons to one pint of water to disinfect)
  • Then wipe down again with a clean damp sponge/ cloth.
  • Leave door of the sauna open until vinegar odor dissipates.

Cleaning Precautions

  • Avoid heavy detergents as they can discolor your wood or leave a residue, which could emit irritating or harmful fumes.
  • Do not use too much water on your cloth/ sponge as the wood will tend to turn dark.
  • Never hose down the interior or exterior of an infrared sauna.
  • Never apply paint, stain or other chemical finishes or sealants to the interior of your sauna. The heat from your infrared sauna may cause the surface to become too hot to the touch or cause toxic fumes to be released.

Although you don’t need to be overly cautious about getting sweat on the surfaces of your home sauna kit, before sitting or reclining on benches, place a few layers of towels on the bench seat to absorb perspiration. You may also use a single towel to cover the floor panel to minimize sweat drop accumulation on floor heater panel. No worries, you’ll feel the heat coming through the towel.
