Hot towel cabinets are wonderful to have, and hot towels are an added touch of luxury for your clients. Hot towels offer a super-special detail that are not just luxurious - they are also beneficial to your client's skin and promote overall relaxation. Hot towels' benefits include opening pores, softening skin, relaxing muscles, promoting circulation and relieving tension.
Hot Towel Cabinet Cleaning
To keep bacteria at bay, however, your hot towel cabbies must be cleaned and well-maintained. Hygienic conditions are imperative in the spa setting, so it's important to employ regular cleaning of the hot towel cabinets for optimal health. The warm, dark environment of a hot towel warmer is an ideal breeding ground for bacteria. Cleaning a hot towel cabinet is as easy as wiping the interior, emptying drip trays on a daily basis and checking for loose screws or broken parts. Keeping your cabinet clean and functional will ensure years of warm, inviting and clean towels.
Hot Towel Cabi Care & Upkeep
Most people who have a hot towel cabinet don't think about it very often. Most cabis are well-made and rarely break, so it's easy to put cleaning and maintenance on the back burner, especially in a busy spa setting. This is particularly true when several therapists use the cabinet, yet no one is solely responsible for its care and upkeep.
Fortunately, cleaning your hot towel cabinet and maintaining it isn't terribly difficult and takes only a few minutes to ensure you have clean, sanitary towels to use.
Start with the Basics
First, start with the basics: Remove and empty any drip trays and clean up any spilled oils that have gotten on the inside of the cabinet. Cleaning up messes as they happen is the best policy - it's always easier to clean things before they've been baked on. While you're checking for spills, take a moment to wipe down the inside of the cabinet. Remove shelves and don't forget to clean the drip tray. Drip trays should be routinely removed each night, along with the towels . Allowing them to stay there promotes an optimal breeding ground for bacteria, mildew and mold. Drip trays should also be regularly washed with warm, soapy water to completely clean its surface. Never leave towels in the cabinet overnight. Warm, dark and damp places are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and a UV light may not fully penetrate all surfaces of the towel to kill bacteria. Whether your cabinet has a UV light or not, make it a habit to remove all towels overnight to ensure you donít accidentally spread disease.
Check Gaskets & Seals
While you're wiping down the inside of the cabinet, take a moment to check out the rubber gasket that seals the door. Pull it forward, away from the metal, and wipe it clean with a damp rag. You'll be amazed at what can get trapped in there! Keeping the gasket clean will help prevent moisture from getting into unwanted places and turning into mold. Once a month, check the screws that are hidden next to the gasket and tighten them if necessary.
Clean Outside Surfaces
Finally, take a moment to clean the outside surfaces of the towel warmer with a damp cloth. It's a good practice to leave the unit open so it dries completely. Make sure that everything is dry, including the racks and the interior surfaces, before shutting the door.
The right massage oil can take a massage from good to great. While there are a number of wonderful massage oils on the market, masseuses can make massage oil and home with the proper recipe. Let's look at the key ingredients needed to make your own massage oil.
What You'll Need
Massage oils are a mix of carrier oils and essential oils with different variations of each used to make different massage oils. To make your own massage oil, you will simply need a good carrier oil, some essential oils and a glass bottle.
First, you will want to pick a carrier oil. This is your base oil and will make up the majority of the final solution. There are five popular choices: coconut oil, sweet almond oil, cold-pressed sunflower oil, grape seed oil and olive oil. Based on the type of massage oil you want, you'll need to research these different carrier oils depending on your client. For instance, grape seed oil is great for people with oily skin types while olive oil is helpful for those with dry skin.
Small is perhaps the most important part of essential oils. These will help relax the client's muscles and improve their overall mood. The most popular essential oils include Lavender, Peppermint, Jasmine and Sandalwood, but there are more than a dozen to choose from. Most good massage oils include three or more essential oils, but you can still make a good massage oil with only one.
In your class bottle mix eight ounces of your carrier oil with about 70 total drops of your essential oil. If you have more than one essential oil, you will want to divide those 70 drops accordingly.
You'll want to put the essential oils in first and then add the carrier oils afterwards. Close your bottle and gently rock the bottle back and forth, opposed to vigorously shaking it. Your massage oil is now complete. You can use it to give a client or loved one a massage or give it as a gift. Feel free to experiment with different carrier and essential oils to find the mix that is right for you.
