Your hot tub is the focal point of your backyard and the place where friends and family enjoy coming together for good times and laughter. You use it often and that’s a good thing. But how do you keep it looking great with so much use? Here are a few easy cleaning tips for your hot tub that will leave your investment looking as shiny and new as the day you brought it home.
Cover – Anyone with a hot tub understands the importance of a quality cover for keeping dirt, leaves, and other debris out of the water and on the ground where it belongs. But over time, all of that dirt and grime can collect on your cover, leaving ugly marks or dried on piles of yuck. Here’s what you do. First, remove your cover completely and spray with a hose to remove any stuck on grime.
Next, make a solution using a mild dishwashing soap or baking soda with water to clean the stubborn stains. Using a sponge or soft bristled brush, scrub the cover gently in a circular motion and rinse clean. Remember, don’t get soap on the inside of the cover and always wipe completely dry. Finally, add a quality protectant to your cover to condition you cover. Ask you dealer what cleaners they have that will help keep your cover in good shape
Exterior – How about the exterior of your hot tub? Cleaning your hot tub cabinet or base is easier than you think. In fact, you can use a household rag or facecloth with mild soap and water to wipe off most marks or scuffs. There are mild cleansers available that may do a better job with tough stains and most are relatively inexpensive. In addition, always use a protectant after cleaning to keep your cabinet shiny and new.
Shell – The shell or interior lining of your hot tub sees a lot of activity and should be cleaned frequently to look its best. Use a soft rag or nylon scrubber to gently wipe away dirt. Make certain to pay close attention to the areas inside your tub where the water line falls. If you have pillows, remove and clean with a mild soap. When you’re finished cleaning, always make certain to rinse the shell completely to remove any residue that may be left behind. As with the exterior, there are non-abrasive hot tub cleansers available that are designed specifically for the shell. You may find some of these products do a better job on tough areas than soap alone.
Enjoying a clean, well-cared for hot tub involves putting in a little effort to keep it clean and free of marks, scuffs, dirt and grime. Make certain to protect your cover, exterior and shell by keeping them washed, rinsed and conditioned when appropriate. A little effort goes a long way and the more you care for your investment, the more it will give back to you for years to come. Your hot tub dealer is the best place to go to get advice, products and services that will keep your hot tub running smoothly for years to come.
