Keeping Up on Your Cleaning as Pedi Season Heats Up

by Holly Schippers | June 24, 2019 | Bookmark +

It’s officially summer and pedicures are in full swing. What are you doing to make sure everything stays clean and safe when everyone is in a hurry? Do you have some time-saving tips to share with fellow nail professionals in the comments below?

It is easier to stay on top of things than to play catch up. A few suggestions to get things rolling:

> Don’t let the laundry get ahead of you — throw a load in when you put remover wraps on someone or as a client washes her hands.

> If there is more than one person in the salon, work as a team. If you’re walking past dirty towels, pick them up on your way past.

> Scrub tools with soap and water right after you use them. Keep soapy water in a spray bottle and a brush on hand so that tools are ready to be rinsed and put into the disinfectant or autoclave when you finish the day or the service.

> Exchange some tidying up for services. If there is a young teen within walking distance of your salon, let her come in an hour or two each day to do laundry, clean tools, and tidy things up in exchange for a gel-polish one week, cute toes another week, a change in art the third week, etc.

Be creative with your time saving solutions so that you take a little of the pressure off yourself while continuing to offer a higher standard of clean!

For those of you that like a little data with your info, here is some really interesting information from salon owner Michele Baker in Georgia. Being one of the first states to open left the salon owners to scramble to learn a lot of things on their own and many have been generous in sharing things they have figured out to help make operating in the COVID-19 world more systematic and understandable.
