Traditional bubble baths combined with a whirlpool can create more bubbles than you bargained for! stick to low foam bath oils and soaps.
After each use, clean off any residue in the bath with hot, soapy water and dry with a soft cloth. Jets should be cleaned with a cotton bud or small washing up brush to remove any grime around them. Especially in hard water areas, regular cleaning is essential to prevent the build-up of ugly limescale deposits.
Once every 6 weeks or so, clean the jet system out fully using whirlpool cleaner:-
- Fill the bath and run with cold water, with the air control off
- Run for 10 minutes; ensure the room is well-ventilated
- Empty the bath and refill and then rinse
Never use abrasive cleaners on acrylic baths or on chrome or gold-plated bath fittings: you'll spoil the beautiful finish. Bleach can also damage the surface of baths, so always choose cleaners that are specially formulated for use on acrylic baths. Or for a truly budget solution, make your own from a mixture of half vinegar, half warm water: this is great for removing mild rust and hard water stains.
The real key to maintaining a beautiful fresh whirlpool bath is regular care and prompt cleaning. Don't let dirt, grime or limescale build up, and you'll have a luxurious bath to sink into for many years to come.
