Before You Begin: Clean Your Bath
Before you even think about hoping into your hot, bubbly bath it’s important that you first give it a good, deep, clean. What you don’t want is to get into your bath, in the hopes of relaxing, only to see weird gunk floating around- so clean the bath first! A good scrub with some citrus and salt should really freshen up your tub and make it look and feel clean and soft. You may not have known this but oven cleaner works wonders when used to clean your bath and can make it look spanking new.
Keep Your Relaxation Tools Close By
Having everything you need to have the perfect spa experience close by is a must, you don’t want to get into the bath and have to get out because you need to get some water, or grab a book. This is why a bathtub caddy is really important. You can lay all the things you need on it, so that they’re close by to use whenever you need them.
Use Music And Lighting To Set The Mood
The right mood is everything when it comes to creating that perfectly serene spa experience. If you’ve ever gone to visit a spa you’ll know that the first thing you notice when you walk in is the low lit lighting and the soft, soothing music. Some dimmable LED lights can really help here and can make setting that all important mood very easy- simply by turning a dial or flicking a switch. Of course you can also use scented candles instead which is a double-win as you can enjoy the scent as well as the calm light.
Make Your Bath The Perfect Temperature
To have the perfect spa experience your bath water needs to be at the perfect temperature. If the bath is too cool, your time spent relaxing will be cut short, and likewise if it’s too hot, it will make you sweat too much. To get it just right it should be somewhere between 90 degrees Fahrenheit and 105 degrees Fahrenheit before you get in. However it’s really down to personal preference. The important thing is that it’s not too hot when you get in or it will just be uncomfortable, which defeats the purpose of a spa experience!
Add Bath Salts, DIY Bath Bombs And Other Luxurious Products
No spa experience would be complete without some amazing products to soak in! There are so many bath products out there but you can make your own at home for less money. Bath salts are very helpful in that they dissolve in the bathwater to soften and perfume the water. These can ease sore muscles and relieve any muscle tension.
