Halloween Candy Anyone!
Halloween candy can be very dirty. Multiple hands have been on wrapped candy form putting in the original bags, to taking out of the bags and putting in a large bowl for others to grab as they walk by before handing out. So at clean and pink this is how we keep bacteria out from under the finger nails. The number 1 tip is to wear gloves when cleaning.
1 – Avoid biting or chewing your fingernails. Not only will your nails look damaged, you’ll also push bacteria and saliva into your nail beds. This will gather dirt and debris underneath your nails and make them look dirty. Additionally, nail-biting can also lead to infections in your cuticles and the skin around your nails.
2 – Wear gloves when getting dirty. Whether you’re digging, scrubbing, or doing dishes, you should wear gloves whenever you can. This will protect your nails from dirt and stop any harsh cleaning soaps from damaging your nails.
3 – Scrape your nails against a bar of soap. Sometimes when you’re working with difficult-to-clean materials such as ink or potting soil you’re not able to wear gloves. In this case, protect the area underneath your nails by scraping your fingernails along a bar of soap. This will push detergent into your nail beds and block any dirt or debris.
