The electric Massage Table Warm Pad is used by thousands of massage therapists and they have some distinct advantages over other types of warm pads. However, keeping an electronic Massage Table Warm Pad clean can be a little tricky since most of the time they are not washable.
If the massage table pad that you want to use is not washable there are ways that you can keep it clean and sanitary without having to wash it constantly, although you will need to check the warm pad everyday to make sure it's not spotted or stained . Here are some tips from massage therapists who love using electric warm pads on keeping the pads clean and soft for a long time:
Keep some baby wipes in a drawer or in your purse and whenever a small stain appears on the warm pad dab it with a baby wipe. If you can clean the stain before it sets the fabric should dry as if there were never a stain there. If the stain is lipstick, face powder or other cosmetic stains as a result of contact with a made up client use make up remover pads that are designed to clean makeup in order to prevent persistent stains.
You can dry clean your Massage Table Warm Pad at home with an at home dry cleaning kit. Using a dryer based dry cleaning kit will also freshen up the warm pad when it starts to look and smell stale. A good home dry cleaning kit will last through several cleansings and is well worth the cost, so make sure you pick one up when you're shopping. Make sure that the dryer is not set too high in order to make sure there is no damage to the fabric.
You can remove stubborn stains by holding a steam iron close to the fabric with the steam on. The steam will loosen dirt and stains and bring them to the surface so that you wipe them away with a baby wipe, makeup remover, or washcloth. Make sure that the fabric does not get too moist from the steam and make sure you let the pad dry for at least a few hours before you use it for a client.
Spray upholstery cleaners, the kind used for cars, can also be used on massage pads to fight really bad stains. Follow the directions on the bottle to get the deepest possible clean.
