12.  What should you do after your Sauna session has finished?

Take a warm shower, exfoliating at this stage will remove the toxins that are now on your skin from sweating.  The heat from the Sauna and warm shower will have left your pores open, therefore it is a good idea to have a cold shower to cool your body and completely close your pores.  
Following this, it is a good idea to rest for 10-15 minutes to allow the body to recover.

13.  How do you clean the Infrared Sauna?

We recommend that you use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner to remove any dust or debris.  Use a mild diluted detergent and a damp sponge or cloth to wipe clean the wood.  Repeat this process with clean water.  Please ensure the sponge/cloth is not to wet as this will soak into the wood and damage it.  DO NOT use harsh chemicals to clean the Sauna.
