Keep it Clean: How to Clean Himalayan Salt Massage Stones

Himalayan Salt Stone Massages are becoming increasingly popular. The benefits of using Himalayan Salt Stones during a massage are numerous, including the absorption of 84 trace minerals through the skin, relief of anxiety, increased relaxation, light exfoliation of the skin, improves circulation, supports healthy blood pressure levels, and more.

But these are blocks of salt…so how the heck do you clean them?

According to Saltability, the manufacturer of some of our most popular Himalayan Salt Stones, it is a simple process:

The simple disinfecting process will ensure the safety of your clients and therapists.

  1. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
  2. Spray Himalayan salt stones and slab with Decon-30
  3. Wait 10 minutes (this wait time is essential to kill any possible contaminants)
  4. Wipe stones down with a clean cloth
  5. Inspect for pitting, and sand any rough areas
  6. Cover with clean towel
  7. Stones are ready for your next treatment!
According to Saltability, even though 100% pure Himalayan salt is antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial, taking measures to disinfect is a recommended, precautionary step to ensure the safety of your clients and therapists. As water will cause the salt stones to disintegrate, using 100% natural Decon-30 keeps the purity of the stones intact after cleaning. Decon-30 is a non-toxic, one-step disinfectant ideal for disinfecting and preventing cross-contamination without harsh fumes that can be harmful to your staff.
Next time you reach for those basalt stones, think again – and offer your clients a relaxing massage using Himalayan Salt Stones instead!
