How do you put lemon slices in your pedicure without having the scum all over your tub at the end of the pedicure?

Q.

How do you put lemon slices in your pedicure without having the scum all over your tub at the end of the pedicure?

A.

When I do my service I let the client soak in the tub with lemons, limes, and oranges. I cut the slices in half. I have a piped system and do not run it while the fruit is in there. If you have a non-piped tub or foot bath the fruit should not get broken up as much. Before I start the rest of the service I scoop them out and discard them. I barely see any ring or residue after I have done the rest of the service that has a soak involved.

What little bit there is I wipe clean when I am finished. I wash it with soap and then I run the tub to disinfect it. Unless you put a huge amount of lemons in and they get beat up, they should not leave that much residue. Test it first before you have a client and see how much is left behind. If it will be a hassle to clean try lemon essential oils instead of the actual fruit so you could get the same effect.
