We had our infrared sauna delivered today.... the guys were morons who put it togther and started it up when there was some statics packing stuff on the heating bars.... so it kinda smelt like burning plastic... well I called the place and they told me how to clean it.... its all clean, but there is a smell in the sauna.
I know dry heat can have a smell, even more so when its new wood and materials....
Oh man, I can't believe they did that!!! Maybe you could try taking some essential oils in with you. I bring my little bottles of oils in the sauna and just rub my temples or my neck while I'm hanging out in there. Did you get a two person sauna? You know where I'm going with that....
Anyway, do you like essential oils? I think some good ones as far as making things smell better are lavender, geranium and jasmine (not all at once, just one). You can put them on a little cloth in the sauna just for the smell or you can add a carrier oil like almond oil and then rub it on your neck or even your scalp. You just need a little bit.

Ring the supplier tell them you want a new heating elemant fitted.
They should of offered it in the first place why should you have to clean your purchased heater.
1. you have an awfull smell, which you dont know could be fumes..??
2. you didnt pay for a dirty smelly spoilt heating elemant
3. you dont know what damage long term the stuff on it could do.
4. its not what you paid for.
I know its hard and its another hick up, its fustrating and exhausting.
Its not what you paid for and its disrespectfull for them to expect you to accept it like it.
If you feel strong enough tell them so. xx
sleep on it and see how you feel tomorrow.

We ran it for 2 hours last night and then used it.... the smell is pretty much gone and now it smells like heated wood.
I never thought about an oil to bring in with me? Great idea!
Jules.... I know what you mean. I am a business owner my self and would never expect any client to take an album that is not correct. We talked with the seller of the sauna and decieded in the end to leave it be. I do plan to call the company to double check and make sure its no problem with what I did.
We got a killer deal (same price as online) and we also had a credit from our ozon system that killed out softtub motor.... I guess some times you get what you pay for!
I would be curious to know if you see any difference in your core body temp and when you see results. I am so cold all the time I know I would like a sauna, but where to put it? The health club I am on medical leave with has one but can't use until I unfreeze my membership. It's expensive so can't do unless I'm going to use all the facilities. That's my goal right now just get better enough to go to the gym. One step at a time......
Hey this is ever so good.
They have tiny ones here for £400
One add writes
This infrared sauna costs less to operate because it uses very little energy - about the same amount used by a hair dryer or toaster oven. And it takes only 5 to 10 minutes to preheat, not the 30 to 60 minutes required by traditional saunas
If this is right then im defo going to have a go.
Dont think id come back out thou some got cd players.
OOh dream, warmth and LL Cool J.
Thanks for letting me know, as my mum would love this also.
For those of you who have saunas, have you noticed a big difference in the way that you feel? How do you clean the sauna? How many times a day can you sit in it and what is the maximum amount of time that is considered safe? My husband is going to buy me a sauna with the tax money which we should have in less than two weeks. I can't wait! It sounds as if they have oodles of health benefits!
