Sauna is a small room or building designed as a place to experience heat sessions. Sauna is a remarkable part of Finnish culture, and that's why there are two saunas in My Summer Car for the player to use. The sauna reduces the player character's dirtiness level.
How to use the saunaEdit
The sauna is located at the back of the player's house. Move through the kitchen and the rear door into the appliance room, and continue opening doors until you get there.
Turn both bottom dials clockwise to the maximum and the stove will start buzzing. Wait some time until the room temperature reaches about 100 °C. When the stove is turned on, the sauna temperature increases about 20 °C every 60 seconds. See the thermometer on the sauna wall. Remember to close the sauna door or otherwise the sauna won't heat up!
Once the room is hot enough, fill the bucket up by placing it under a running tap. There's one in the shower room and in the kitchen. Pick up the ladle and equip it using the action button (default F). Left click the bucket and Right click the stones in the sauna stove, enjoy the steamy goodness!
The sauna works also on lower temperatures, but the higher the sauna temperature is the greater the cleansing effect is when you throw water on to the stove.
It can be tricky to pour water onto the stones, so try different angles. The most effective approach is to stand directly in front of the stove as close as possible, aiming directly in the middle of the stones when you splash.
Wait for the hissing sound to stop before splashing again to ensure you get the desired effect of reducing your dirtiness.
You'll get the "Welcome to Finland" Steam achievement for successfully using the sauna, and the "Golden steam" for urinating on the stove.
How to use the wooden saunaEdit
After the February 5th 2017 update, there is now a wooden sauna in the cottage located on the island. Using it is quite simple; chop some wood behind the cottage, put some firewood in the stove (fits 4 at a time) then press the use button to light it. To fill up the water bucket, just submerge it in the lake.
