Ready to have your best bath ever?

Here at Safety Bath Walk-In-Tubs, we’re all about comfort! We’d love for you to have the best bath ever with our top 20 tips to have a relaxing and affordable spa quality bath!
- Before you start, clean your tub.
You’ll feel much more relaxed without any gunk floating around in your bathwater. Citrus and salt will freshen up your tub or whatever store-bought cleaner you’ve got!
- Make a DIY bathtub shelf.
This project is simple even when you’re not super DIY savvy and is perfect for holding a glass of wine, a book or your beloved phone.
- Set the mood.
The first thing you’ll notice about a spa is its relaxing atmosphere. Dim lights, soft music, and relaxing scents are all part of the environment. Add a candle, dim your lights, add some relaxing music and you’ve got your own home spa.
- Set the perfect temperature.
Bathwater that is too cool will cut your relaxation time short, bathwater that’s too hot will cause you to sweat and be uncomfortable. It needs to feel warm when you get in but not uncomfortably hot.
- Keep your warm bath, warm.
A decent soak in the tub should last at least 20 minutes, however, hot water loses heat much more quickly than that. You can always drain some water and refill if needed. Adding a layer of bubbles is another way to keep your warm water warm. The bubbles act as a layer of insulation.
- Invest in some bath bombs or salts.
A spa-like experience isn’t complete without some great products to soak in. These products are great for relaxing but can also help relieve sore muscles and tension.
- Implement relaxation techniques.
A warm bath is a great way to lie back quietly and is the perfect place to perform some relaxation techniques. Place one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest while you take some deep breaths.
- Grab a snack.
Whether your snack is some tea, a glass of wine or some fruit take it with you into the tub.
- Gather a fluffy towel and bathrobe.
Consider throwing your towel and robe in the dryer for a few minutes before jumping in the tub. These items will be soft and toasty waiting for you to get out of the tub.
- Put on a facemask.
A facemask is an excellent way to relax in the tub and is even better for your skin.
