How Do I Clean & Maintain My Infrared Sauna?

Here are the tips to keep your wood and cloth surfaces in your infrared sauna clean and fresh.

Wood Surface (backrests)

  • Use of our “S-Curve” backrest with a towel will virtually eliminate sweat stains on the built-in wood backrest.
  • Always lay a clean towel on the bench to absorb excess sweat.
  • If emitter backrests are wet from sweat, wipe off excess moisture with a clean towel.
  • If emitters are stained, lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper. Use a vacuum to remove dust from black cloth.

Wood Surface (bench tops)

  • Always sit on a clean towel when sauna bathing to absorb excess sweat.
  • Wipe off excess sweat with dry towel after bathing.
  • Use a damp towel to gently scrub sweat stains.
  • If needed, use 220 grit sandpaper to lightly sand sweat stains from bench surfaces.
  • A light coating of pure Paraffin Oil will help to protect bench surfaces from absorbing sweat/moisture. Reapply after every 40 hours use.

Black Cloth

  • If black cloth is wet from sweat, use a dry towel to absorb excess moisture.
  • If the black cloth appears soiled, use a damp towel to lightly scrub the stains and allow to dry. (avoid any detergents that could discolor the cloth or leave a residue that could off-gas when heated).
  • A vacuum cleaner with a brush head works great for removing lint/dust.
  • If you have an area that is dusty but the vacuum wand will not reach, use a piece of painters or masking tape to pick up the foreign material.
