Hot Towel Cabis
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How hot does a hot towel warmer get?
Hot towel cabinets will heat from a range between approximately 150 to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. While some hot towel cabis have adjustable temperatures, others are simply power on or off. In most instances, towels will be thoroughly heated between 15 to 60 minutes depending on the size and capacity of the unit.
How can I keep hot towels warm?
To keep a hot towel warm as long as possible, start with high quality towels. Neatly roll and fold the towels prior to placing in the hot towel cabinet and thoroughly heat the towels through following manufacturer's recommendations. Do not stuff too many towels in your warmer and always check the temperature against your own skin before placing on a client’s body. Properly following the instructions included with your hot towel warmer will maximize the heat retention of the towel.
How do I steam the face with a hot towel?
A moist hot towel is a perfect way to open the pores of the skin and provide an initial sense of warmth and relaxation for any facial treatment. For convenience, we recommend using a hot towel steamer or hot towel cabi to heat and store your towels. Some hot towel steamer units will moisten and heat the towels while other hot towel cabinets require you to dampen the towels first. Simply wet the towel with clean water and wring it out thoroughly. Neatly fold and roll the towel and place it into the unit to warm. Once the towel is heated through, carefully remove it from the unit and unroll. Check the temperature against your forearm to ensure the towel will not burn your client and place the unrolled, folded towel around the face leaving the nose and mouth exposed. Allow the steaming towel to penetrate the skin for up to 5 minutes or until the towel cools.
How long should a hot towel cabinet be left on?
Hot towel cabinets can be powered on and operational throughout the entire workday; however it is not sanitary to store towels in the cabinet overnight. Daily cleaning and regular maintenance will ensure a long life for your hot towel cabi. Please consult your unit’s manual for detailed information on using and caring for your hot towel warmer.
