If you have a wood hot tub that is starting to look a little dirty, you probably need to know exactly how to clean a wood hot tub. It's not as hard as you might think and you need very few materials. Keep you wood hot tub clean and sparkling by using these steps.
- Wipe the tub down with a terry cloth towel. If there are areas that need scrubbing, use a plain scrub brush that you can get from the department store.
- Use a towel with baking soda for tough areas. If you need further cleaning than just a good wipe down, add a little bit of baking soda to your terry cloth. Use it to wipe off the interior walls of the wood hot tub.
- Rinse the tub off with water. Once you have cleaned using the terry cloth towel and baking soda, you can rinse off the walls of the hot tub with warm water and allow them to dry.
- Never use chlorine to clean your wood hot tub. Not only will your tub smell bad, you will destroy the wood.
By keeping your wood hot tub clean and fresh, you will be able to use it for years to come. Clean your hot tub at least once per month for optimal use. If you keep having trouble with your tub looking dirty, then you probably need to adjust the pH levels of the water in the tub. Using a product such as Spa Defender will keep the pH in your tub balanced and it will be much easier to clean.
