Care of Salt lamps

We Often Get Asked: “How Do I Care For My Himalayan Salt Lamp”?  Or What Is The Best Way To Look After Salt Lamps”?

The Best way to care for your salt lamps and for the best results, we recommend leaving the Himalayan Salt Lamp on 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

*Keep dry at all times, leave on all day, everyday.

*Do not take the Salt Lamp outside, if you choose to do so for entertaining, once you are done for the night, make sure you bring the Salt Lamp back inside and light up.

*Leave lamp on as the heat from the light globe will help generate the negative ions whilst stopping the lamps from absorbing water.

*Sometimes in particularly moist or humid conditions the lamp surface may be slightly damp, they are safe to wipe clean with a damp cloth and leave on.

*If you plan not to use the Salt Lamp for long periods of time or you go away on holidays cover your Salt Lamps with a plastic bag to prevent moisture being absorbed.

*Always turn off the power while changing the light globe or moving the Salt Lamp.

*Replace light globe with a 15watt oven globe.

Safety Tips:

*Himalayan Salt Lamp Dimmer Switch Reviewed!

*Always unplug the Salt Lamp before changing the light globe to prevent electric shock or light globe fusing

*We recommend not to use dimmer switches as you need the heat to release the negative irons into the air.

*If you are buying a Himalayan Salt Lamp for the bedroom, we suggest to buy a darker Salt Lamp as the light is more subdued.

*All salt lamps have a beautiful light and can be used as a night light.

What Is the Recommended Wattage To Use In A Salt Lamp?

*At  Forever Exotic we use a 15watt Oven globe, they tend to have a lot more life spam on them than just your normal light globe.

*Eventually they will pop… It is just the nature of the light globes, but here is a few tips…

*Leave on 24/7.

*Try not to use the on and off switch.

*If moving the salt lamp from one room to another switch off, wait for 5 to 10 minutes, allowing the light globe to cool down, then move, otherwise you will knock the element of the globe and it will not work anymore.

Electrical Safety Instructions of your Himalayan Salt Lamps!

When it comes to electricity, we all need to be extremely careful. There is no need for any of us to put our lives in danger when it comes to electricity.

Always turn off the power before changing the light globe to prevent electric shock or light globe fusing.
