We all know that ironing clothes can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be so. Contrary to your previous experience, an iron is not the only tool that can be used to de-wrinkle your laundry. You can actually use a steam shower to iron your clothes before the work day or before an important meeting.

We’ve all been in that same situation, in which we’re short on time and we have an important event, but our clothes just won’t de-wrinkle. Or, we ran out of time and can’t get the iron to work. Even worse, sometimes irons get too hot and burn the piece of clothing. If you don’t have a backup outfit, the results can be disastrous. In other cases, some fabrics are just impossible to use an iron on because you’ll ruin your clothes. Additionally, ironing takes practice and dedication to be good at and some of us just don’t have the time to perfect the act.

Luckily, there are other options you can use to make your clothes look good. Using a steam shower to iron clothes is a quick and easy process. Simply hang your clothes inside of the steam shower, turn on the steam and close the steam shower enclosure. Take your clothes out after 10 to 15 minutes. They should look like they’ve just been pressed. This method will save a lot of time and hassle, especially because you won’t have to iron every individual piece of clothing to get the look you want.

Ironing clothes with a steam shower will also save you time in the morning because you can continue to get ready while your clothes are hanging in the steam shower .You can do your makeup, pick out your shoes, shave or make breakfast while your clothes are being steamed.

Most people know you can iron clothes in an average shower by turning the heat up, running the water and closing the bathroom door. Ironing clothes with a steam shower is more convenient because you only have to close the steam shower enclosure. Also, steaming clothes in an average shower will not be as effective as steaming clothes in a steam shower unit.

Using your steam shower to iron your clothes will be like using a professional garment steamer without having to buy another appliance. You will also get all of the benefits of owning a steam shower along with being able to iron your clothes. A garment steamer doesn’t allow you to shower with steam.

The steam shower will not only make your clothes look better; it will make you feel better and make your skin look better. Showering with steam is a great method of relaxation. It also has a long list of health benefits, including increasing circulation, relieving pain, cleaning skin, soothing respiratory issues and aiding cardiovascular issues. Taking a steam shower will make your muscles feel better, make it easier to breathe as your airways are cleaned and give you an excellent way to relax.

Oil

Yes, you can use bath oils in whirlpool bathtubs. Enjoy your bathtub with the use of your favorite bath oils and scents.

Salt

Do not use bath salts with your whirlpool bathtub. The salt may rust the internal components of the bathtub. Furthermore, the salt can clog the system, including the pipes and the water pump. This will result in clogs. For example, salt may get stuck in the intake, which recycles water back through the pump and into the bathtub. The salt could settle into the bottom jets of the bathtub and clog the system. Mold may also grow in the jets later as a result. You should not run the pump in your whirlpool bathtub with anything in the bathtub other than water.

Bubble Bath

Feel free to use a very small amount of bubble bath in whirlpool bathtubs. The reason is that the movement in the water from the jets will create even more bubbles. If you put too much bubble bath in, you will fill your bathroom with foam and soap bubbles. This may be a funny experience you will look back on, but you won’t want it to become recurrent.

Cleaning

Note that if you use items in the bathtub that you shouldn’t, you will have to clean your bathtub more often because the jets will become clogged and dirt, bacteria and mold could begin to grow inside. You will have to clean the system more often and more thoroughly. Also, whirlpool bathtubs are cleaned differently than the average bathtub.

Always check the manual that came with your product for specific instructions regarding care and maintenance. The following are general guidelines. To clean whirlpool bathtubs, first fill the bathtub with water so it reaches the level two inches above the highest jets. Then, pour one half cup of bleach in the bathtub and run the jets for 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and rinse your bathtub. Next, repeat this with a small amount of dish soap, and drain and rinse again. Lastly, run the bathtub with cold water and run the jets one more time. If there is still dirt in your water, repeat the process until it is clean. You can perform this once a month to keep it clean.

Taking a steam shower at the end of the day can be an incredibly relaxing experience. It can help you deal with the stress of the day or soothe tired muscles from working out. Steam will also help your skin, breathing, blood circulation, metabolism, sleep and will help reduce pain. Before taking your first steam shower, there are some simple steps and tips you should know.

First of all, people with health problems and women who are pregnant should not use a steam shower before speaking with their doctor. Before taking a steam shower, drink plenty of water. You do not want to become dehydrated during your steam session. You may also want to take a quick shower or rinse before turning on the steam in your steam shower. In public steam baths, people usually shower before entering.

Note that you should not drink alcohol before using a steam shower. This will lower your blood circulation.

If it’s your first time using a steam shower, only relax in the steam for a few minutes to let  your body get used to it. Otherwise, enjoy the steam for 15 to 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn off the steam and take a cool shower. Be careful not to subject your body to extreme changes in temperature. The cool shower will lower your body temperature back to a more normal one, in place of a hot one.

You can take another steam shower in the same day, but it’s recommended and important that you let your body return to room temperature before doing so. Cool yourself down and take a break before entering the steam shower again. Do not use the steam in the steam shower more than three times in the same day.

At the end of your steam session, drink water again.

A steam shower creates a wet humidity, while a sauna creates a type of dry heat. You can switch between a steam shower and a sauna session as long as you allow your body to cool down and return to room temperature in-between sessions.
