A spa bath creates a relaxing, inviting experience that you can enjoy without leaving your home. This type of bath is not much different than a basic tub or shower, except for the jacuzzi jets that provide the spa treatment that relaxes the body. The important thing to take into account when cleaning the spa bath is the jets themselves. This is where the majority of soap scum and residue builds up, which you cannot see with the naked eye. It is crucial to use cleaning elements that flush out the spa jets during the cleaning process.

Begin filling the spa bath with hot water. Allow it to fill with approximately 1 foot of hot water.

Pour 1 cup of dishwasher detergent and 2 cups of vinegar into the water. The dishwasher detergent will break apart soap scum and residue both on the tub surface and within the jet lines, while the vinegar will disinfect and deodorise. Using a dishwasher detergent instead of regular liquid dish soap will prevent soap suds.

Turn off the water supply when the water line is above all jet lines.

Turn on the jets of the spa bath, and let them run for 30 minutes.

Drain the tub completely, and refill with a fresh bath of hot water, again filling above all jet lines.

Allow the jets to run for 15 minutes to give a final rinse to the bath and jets. Drain and allow to air dry.
