Massage Table Warmer Features

Table warmers usually have standard sizes that fit most of the massage tables available in the market. The standard size is 30 inches wide by 72 inches long. They also have the usual features such as adjustable settings and automatic overheat protection. Their power source is from a regular power outlet. The main difference is in the quality of the fabric as well as in the digital display. User reviews on quality and durability can greatly help you pick which one to get.

The video below shows what a table warmer looks like.

Adjustable Settings: These include preset temperature options and timer functions. The values are controlled via an LED display in the digital controller. The preset options vary by brand. Some come with 5 while others only have 2-3 (low, medium, high). The auto overheat protection reduces the risk of fire in case someone accidentally left the unit on for an extended period of time.

Cleaning A Massage Table Warmer

Typically, table warmers don’t need cleaning after several uses since they are covered with a table sheet on top. However, they do get dirty and smelly over time. Apparently, you can’t machine wash an electrical unit, so you’ll have to clean it by hand. It’s okay to get the fabric wet as long as the unit is off and disconnected from the power plug. However, you have to be careful not to introduce water into the digital controller. Only then can you can wash it by hand with water and detergent.

When drying the table warmer, make sure that the digital controller is not exposed to extreme heat. Simply allow the fabric to dry naturally with the wind and with moderate sunlight. Once again, keep in mind that the controller must not be exposed to water and extreme heat.
