Cleaning Your Hot Tub and Sauna

In order to reach the Personal Happiness Quotient Harbor Hot Tubs strives for, it’s important to maintain a clean and healthy hot tub and sauna. 

Maintaining a clean product like a hot tub and sauna can be as simple or as complicated as the owner makes it. One of the best steps is to check these products regularly. 

Sauna distributor Finnelo says to avoid painting the inside of the sauna so the wood can breathe the way it’s been built. “The simplest method of sauna maintenance is to keep a hand brush near the sauna door,” the company says on its website. Not only will this keep the sauna looking as great as the first day it was installed, it will prevent future, more serious complications.While there are sauna cleaners available, the site also advises using bleach and lightly sanding your sauna once a year.

In an interview with Lawrence LaRose for Shelter the Hamptons, Fyffe expresses his desire to share with his customers his own “tools to maintain serenity.” Traveling to India and several times to Peru, Fyffe’s spiritual journey weighs heavily into that serenity he wants to share with others. To him, it’s more about making his customers feel good and enjoy what he can offer, but to also help them acquire a “physical, mental, and spiritual well being.”
