Hot Tubs & Drinking

A Reminder to Be Cautious

 

Enjoy alcohol sensibly

As the New Year is upon us, we wanted to post a friendly reminder not to drink or to use caution about drinking while you are soaking in your tub. Read on to find out why hot tubs and alcohol can be a risky combination.

Dehydration

  • Alcohol dehydrates the body and so does sweating in a hot tub. Because there are two actions dehydrating you it may cause light-headedness, dizziness, nausea, or worse. Consider swapping your wine for a glass of water when you are in the hot tub.

Dizziness

  • Drinking alcohol can cause dizziness, which makes it easier for you to stumble or fall—obviously not what you want to happen in or near a hot tub.

Sleeping or Unconsciousness

  • The depressant effect of alcohol in combination with the high temperatures of a hot tub can cause you to fall asleep in the tub.

Body Temperature

  • The heat in a hot tub expands your blood vessels and increases body temperature, as does drinking alcohol.

Here at Softub Express we know how great it is to be able to relax in your own home whenever you want, but keep these tips in mind so you have a safe hottubbing experience!
