Nobody wants to smell like a hot tub after a relaxing soak.  That smell can last a full day sometimes.  One easy solution is to shower immediately when you get out.  Try using an exfoliant or louffa to scrub the chemicals off the skin's surface. 

A few other best practices for hot tub owners:

  • Make sure to dry the cover out as much as possible as often as possible. Zipping down the cover and exposing the foam to fresh air and sunshine helps. 

  • Watch for moldy or dark spots on the cover and edges of the tub and make sure to disenfect and scrub these areas right away.  Also a spray bottle of diluted bleach for cleaning tools, and any items used in the tub works wonders.

  • Keep a close eye on the PH Balance to make sure it is not too high. A good PH is 7.4 - 7.6. Also, check the recommende use of sanitizing chemicals. To high PH and too low chemicals could cause an unpleasant odor in your tub.

  • Put your tub on a draining/cleaning schedule. When empty clean and sanitize the filter and pipes. Scrub the interior surfaces to disenfect as well.
