There is probably one desire of any homeowner faced with a standard five foot tub in their home. They wish for a soaker tub so that they could have an at-home spa experience. One little modification away, you can improve your standard tub to get closer to it.
It is the end of a hard day or week. All you want is to soak in a tub and relax. But the problem is that your home tub is the standard five foot variety that barely covers your tummy when laying in it. Hardly satisfying.
You only have a few options. You can go to the spa which is counter to just curling up at home and relaxing. Or you can plan for an expensive renovation to replace the tub.
The renovation sounds great but will take time and money. So what can you do in the meanwhile to sooth those aching muscles and bones?
The answer is a simple one. If the water is not coming up enough to cover you, there is one little trick to make the tub level come up about two more inches. All you need is a Philips screwdriver.
The standard tub has a overflow feature usually under the faucet. The holes are at the bottom so as to prevent you from overfilling the tub. Take a Philips screwdriver, loosen it and turn the cover so that the holes are at the top. This turn will allow you to fill the tub another two inches.
That simple. Fill the tub with water until it reaches the bottom of the overflow cover. When you get in you will be pleased with the extra water covering you. Don’t fill to the openings because then when you get in, the tub will overflow onto the floor.
My home spa routine also includes a candle for mood. I add Arbonne Rescue and Renew Detox Bath Soak to the water as the tub fills and I enjoy the clean smell of the sea salt crystals. While it is filling, I use the Arbonne Rescue and Renew Detox Face Mask on my face. After 20 minutes, I start emptying the tub and rub my body with the Arbonne Rescue and Renew Detox Scrub. Once the water drained, I shower to get rid of the mask and scrub while using the Arbonne FC5 Shampoo. It is important to re-hydrate after a hot soak – so I drink water with Arbonne’s Complete Hydration to ensure I replenish my minerals.
Now I am ready to conquer the world again…
