To ensure a sanitary manicure every time, follow these simple steps.

  • Clean clippers, glass files, and cuticle nippers regularly. Wipe off any debris, wash with soap and water, and disinfect by rubbing with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball.
  • Don’t share emery boards. Because they are made of paper, they can’t be properly sanitized. Replace them when the grit begins to wear down or filing your nails no longer produces smooth results.
  • Store tools properly. Place dry, disinfected implements in an airtight container. This will keep them germ-free.
