Care Tips

Never wash your Himalayan salt lamp as its natural effect is one of self cleansing. With its antibiotic properties it does not need washing. If it gets dusty, just use a dry or slightly damp cloth to clean it.

We do recommend leaving your lamp on as much as possible however, when not using for long periods, do not leave your lamp in a humid room or outside of the home where it is exposed to the elements. Try not to keep your lamp on a window sill or in a bathroom (or anywhere with large amounts of moisture present.

We recommend placing your Himalayan salt lamp onto a decorative plate or holder, to avoid it leaving marks on any much-loved furniture.

Screw the light bulb firmly into the power cable fitting.

In humid conditions we recommend placing your lamp onto a small tray or dish in the rare case they may pool water.

Planning on going away on holiday?

If you plan on having your lamp switched off for an extended period, we recommend unplugging the power cord, separating the cord from your salt lamp, and wrapping the salt lamp in a plastic bag to keep it air tight. This will prevent the lamp from pooling water.

Getting  Salt bars hot: 

The Golden Rule of Heating Ye Salt Block: 
* 20 minutes on low
* 20 minutes on medium
* 20 minutes on high

* Sprinkle Test: Sprinkle a few drops of water on the block. If they sizzle vigorously and disappear immediately, the block is ready.

* Hand Test: Hold your hand two or three inches above the block. If you can't keep it there more than 5 seconds, it's hot enough!

* If you don't trust your senses - or if you really really really love hi-tech gadgets, snag yourself an infrared thermometer.  It reads the temperature of your block for you. You're looking for about 500°F.

Voila! You are now ready to throw some steak on your block - and dazzle your wife or your friends or your auntie in the process.
