What's the difference, effect wise, between the two?
When should they be used? Post-workout, off days, or other?
How long should you stay in one?

I would assume so. I also notice that after swimming if you go in the steam room or sauna your skin smells less like chlorine than if you had just had a shower. I think you should have a cold shower after to close the pores, I wouldn't want to walk around all sweaty in my clothes.Originally posted by JohnGafnea
Is it best to wash off (or at least [non-chlorine] water off) after you get out and are all sweaty?
