To experience a comfortable sauna, you need relevant sauna accessories to enhance the sauna experience.
The sauna water bucket and ladle are essential accessories for saunas. With the sauna bucket, you can pour water onto the sauna rocks to create moisture. Steam plays an essential part in sauna bath equipment; it helps to cleanse the lungs and purify the skin.
What is the purpose of a sauna bucket?
Sauna water buckets and ladles are used to hold clean water that is poured onto hot sauna rocks to produce moist steam.
Pouring water on the rocks turns a dry sauna into a moist one; this creates a sudden heat sensation and increases the humidity of the air in the sauna room. In traditional Finnish saunas, you can find buckets filled with hot and cold water in various sauna rooms used to produce steam.
Traditionally, there is no running water near the sauna, so buckets and basins are used for storage.
Some first-time sauna bathers also use sauna buckets to pour lukewarm water on their bodies for an instant cool-down.
