My Summer Car — the be a Finnish man simulator — allows you to live the life of a pre-internet Finn in ’95. You can drive at breakneck speeds through the Finnish countryside and feel like Tommi Mäkinen, or die at the side of the road in a horrific crash. You might even get rammed off the road by the police, or just starve to death.

One thing that will always happen in My Summer Car is you will get dirty — working on a car is greasy work! But how exactly do you get clean? In this game which is the pure unadulterated Finnish life, you get clean in the most Finnish way possible by having a sauna. (Yes, the sauna is your shower/bath.)

How exactly do I use the sauna?

First, you have to find the damn sauna!

After waking up from a nice nap, head straight through to the kitchen.

When in the kitchen head through the door, visible to the right of the table. Shown above.

You’ll then find yourself in the laundry room, head dead straight through the door, and the sauna will be right in front of you.

Continue through into the sauna, and you will find a bucket, water scoop, and the burner to the right.

First thing you want to do is pick up the bucket, and head back to the shower in the previous room.

Place the bucket underneath the tap, and using the left tap turn the water on. Your bucket will now start to fill. Once full, head back into the sauna room.

After placing the bucket wherever you wish, crouch down and look at the base of the burner. You will see two knobs, turn the heat up full (the hotter the sauna is, the quicker you clean). When you then turn the timer on for the burner, the thing should buzz. You are now ready to get hot and steamy.

Pick up the spoon/water scoop, and press F (default key) to bring it into ‘scoop mode.‘ Using the left mouse button when near the bucket will scoop up some water.

Now stand in front of the burner, and press the right mouse button to fling water and enjoy a steam clean. You just need to wait for the steam to clear, and you will get cleaner.

This is after 1 clean.

Repeat the two steps above to be the cleanest Finn in all the land!

Now that you are clean, why not head to the local bar? Or grab some sleep after a hot saunas work.

Note: if you are in the red, it may take a few ‘cleans’ before it starts dropping.
