Winter is just around the corner, and for those fortunate enough to enjoy the pleasure of an ice tub, it's crucial to keep the facilities in top condition. Nordkilde, your reliable online shop for ice tub accessories, presents an easy-to-follow guide to ensure that your ice bath remains clean and usable throughout the season.

The frequency of cleaning your ice tub in winter depends on several factors, including how often it's used, weather conditions, and the environment surrounding the ice tub. Here are some general guidelines.

Would you like to clean your ice tub naturally?

Maintaining the cleanliness of your ice tub doesn't necessarily have to involve chemicals or chlorine. With a natural approach, you can enjoy the benefits of a clean ice tub without impacting the environment. Here are some simple steps for natural cleaning:

  1. Drain the tub of water. In Nordkilde's ice tub, there's a drain at the bottom, allowing water to drain out calmly.

  2. Natural Brushing and Scrubbing: Use a soft brush or a natural sponge to clean the surface of the ice tub. This helps remove impurities like leaves and dust. Gently scrub to avoid scratches. Natural fibers or brushes are ideal for this purpose.

  3. Lemon Juice as a Disinfectant: Lemon juice is known for its disinfecting properties. Mix fresh lemon juice with water and apply it to the surface of the ice tub. Lemon juice can help fight bacteria and provide a fresh scent.

  4. Vinegar for Limescale Removal: Vinegar is an effective natural solution for removing limescale deposits. Mix vinegar with water and apply it to areas with limescale. Let it sit for a while, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.

  5. Natural Sunbath: If possible, allow the ice tub to have a natural sunbath. The sun's UV rays have disinfectant properties that can help kill bacteria. However, this applies mainly during summer when the temperature is particularly strong.

  6. Regular Water Replacement: To maintain the freshness and purity of the water, consider regularly replacing it. This can help remove accumulated impurities. During summer, it's advisable to do this more frequently than during autumn or winter.

With these natural cleaning tips, you can preserve the cleanliness of your ice tub in an eco-friendly manner. It's not just beneficial for you but also for the environment around you.

Frequency of Use: If the ice bath is regularly used for bathing or other activities, consider cleaning it more frequently to prevent the accumulation of impurities. If you exercise or engage in any other form of sport, it's a good idea to clean it more often than usual.

Weather Conditions: During periods of heavy snowfall or ice formation, it may be necessary to clean the ice tub more frequently to remove snow or ice layers that can accumulate on the surface.

Environmental Conditions: If the ice tub is exposed to dust, leaves, or other particles, it may be necessary to clean it more frequently to prevent these materials from getting into the water.

Preventive Measures: Consider implementing preventive measures, such as placing a cover over the ice tub when it's not in use, to protect it from environmental influences.

As a general guideline, pay attention to the condition of the ice bath and clean it as needed. Regular inspection and maintenance can help maintain cleanliness and ensure a pleasant experience.
