    Smile the hot and steamy sauna

    Helen really enjoyed sitting in the hot and steamy sauna.



    If I say "the hot and steamy Finnish bath," do I lose some things from the above original?

    Re: the hot and steamy sauna

    You will lose clarity - "sauna" is immediately understood; "Finnish bath" is not a commonly used term.

    Re: the hot and steamy sauna

    Where I live, the sauna is the room with the very DRY heat and the steam room is the one with the steamy heat. I have no idea what a Finnish bath is.
