Q.

What's a good way to remove the deep-down embedded dirt, oil, and grease from the sidewalls and cuticle areas of my male clients?

A.

Can you suggest a cleaner or some other way to remove that deep-down embedded dirt, oil, and grease from the sidewalls and cuticle areas of my male (and in some cases female) clients?

Gilliam: Try mixing 2 tablespoons of baking soda, 3 teaspoons of lemon juice, and 6 ounces of warm water. Let your client soak for about 5 minutes and scrub the nails with a nylon brush.

Carlini: Try using an orangewood stick or a pointed cotton swab dipped in cleanser to get into those hard to reach areas. You should also encourage all clients to use cuticle oil every day to help keep the cuticle and sidewall areas moisturized. You might find that the oil, dirt, and grime won’t get so embedded because these areas won’t be so dry.
