messageBath towel or beach towel in Swedish saunas?
Posted by Bob Buzzard April 20, 09:56PM

Any Scandi fans out there? I'm thinking of going to Sweden soon, so I might be invited to a sauna. I know Swedish people don't tend to wear clothes in the sauna, but I know they use towels - are they bath towels or beach towels? I I don't want to be out of place bringing the wrong sort of towel because I'm English.

I've been watching Scandi noir sauna scenes in preparation for my trip, but I can't make out if they're using bath or beach towels in the sauna scenes.

No, the towel needs to be big enough to cover you and you also sit on it. thank

Yes, Mrs Bob is coming along. I've decided to pack one of those types of towels that could be seen either as a bath towel or a beach towel -I should be fine then and Swedish mishaps.

Just admiring the return to the sort of threads that I'd expect from ED. But disappointed in the advice. Clearly you need a sarong, both because they are so versatile but also as a statement that you have traveled the world and are a pretty liberal type of guy. Swedes will love it.

I think a tiny pair of Speedo’s is standard, along with a small towel, and some well trodden down flip-flops Bob.

But it’s your manner that’s most important. You must be slow, calm and have the endurance of a rhino in the midday sun. You must be able to take the heat, or the Swedes will poo-poo you with “no wonder Brexit is happening” as you keep flitting in and out of the sauna.

If you are depilated then go sans the trunks, it’s my preference.

Thank you for your erstwhile advice - I will take heed - is it the 'budgie smuggler' type Speedos I should wear?

Bob

Any speedos will do except white ones that go see through when wet as nobody ever wants to see the budgie in the nip

I think I'm going to have nightmares now

shrink wrapped bacon in the supermarket freezer. Now there is a blast from the past.

Just don't piss on the sauna rocks, a really foul steam results (so I'm told).
You'll gain no admirers.

Thanks for the advice everyone, but Mrs Bob says it's probably best she goes on her own to Sweden and I stay at home. I'll just do a steam inhalation from an IKEA bowl instead. Is menthol or eucalyptus oil best to inhale?
