We have been in Morocco for more than a week now. The hospital that our friend sponsored is finished, everything installed and it has already started taking patients. I helped install several bathtubs successfully. Now everything is set but we still need to tie up a few loose ends. Bathtubs are not very common here in Morocco. So after installing them, we have been teaching people how to use them and the benefits of using a bathtub.
Here are some of the benefits that we shared with them:
Using a bathtub is great for your health
Believe it or not, soaking away in the tub does much more than soak the dirt away. It soaks all the stress away. One thing that you will love about bathtubs is that when you soak in the water, you enjoy some relaxing moments, and research has shown that using a bathtub seriously boosts the mood. This is why hydrotherapy has been practiced for millennia.
A bathtub that is filled with hot water is going to help you feel relaxed. Hot water also increases the heart rate, making your heart beat faster and thus transfer more oxygen to different parts of the body.
Soaking in the hot water is going to help relieve the symptoms of a cold, including blocked nose and stuff. Apart from that, it also enhances the health of your lungs. As you breathe in some of that steam, your airways relax and you can breathe much better.
Lastly, soaking in hot water helps drive the ache out of your muscles. Just sit there and feel better as the warmth seeps into your muscles, giving them the therapy that they need so much to relax. You can almost feel the tension ebbing out.
It is easy to keep clean all the time
A traditional bathtub can be a tad hard to maintain. However, if you have an acrylic bathtub at home, it is easy to maintain and clean. The inner and outer side are easy to clean. All that you need to do is warm some water and then use a big sponge to make everything clean. You can scrub the exterior, with the sponge, nothing hard because this is acrylic. You can do the same for the inside and when you rinse the tub, you will realize that it will be spotlessly clean.
A bathtub increases the value of your bathroom
Let us assume that in the future, you decide to put your home up for sale. The first thing that prospective buyers look at is the bathroom. If they are impressed, they buy. With a bathtub, you can be sure they will feel quite impressed. A bathtub increases the value of a home as do the modern fittings and kitchen appliances.
Bathroom looks incredibly good
A bathroom should never look drab and unhappy. It should be a lively place where you go to relax after a hard day at work. Now, nothing uplifts the looks of a bathroom more than a bathtub. If the tub looks good, then the bathroom looks good. With a bathtub, with detergents, soaps and lotions arranged on the rim of the tub, the transformation is indeed good.
