Disposable Nail Products Will Make Your Salon the Most Popular Around!

Nail salon cleanliness is a hot topic these days, and nail salon clients are looking closer and closer at what goes on behind the scenes at your nail salon (See Rebeca's "Cuticle Soup" blog). With concerns such as infections and wounds, clients are more aware of nail salon practices, and looking around your establishment with a wary eye.

Wouldn't you rather be known as the cleanest salon in town? Clients notice even the smallest details, so it is important to show your clients that their safety is important to you....even if you have to charge slightly more to cover the costs. In the long run, you will definitely benefit from the clean practices.


Some "Clean" Nail Salon Practices:
Disposable files and buffers
are ideal for cleanliness and comfort!

    Use disposable nail files and nail buffers to set your clients at ease. The mini block buffers are the perfect size for just 1 use, and with some priced under $0.05/client, they are affordable, too!

    Other disposable items are a good idea too - disposable toe separators, slippers, and even manicure cups for soaking. Any item that could potentially house germs and cooties, if you can make it disposable, do it. Clients will adore you for it!

    Invest in an autoclave to thoroughly sterilize all of your metal tools. Use it properly, and be sure to let your clients see you opening the sterilized pouch. They will feel more confident in your hands.

    Never leave water standing in your pedicure tubs. Pedicure tubs must be cleaned after each and every use. Try the new Pedi Spa Cleaner by Spa Redi! Even better, instead of a pedicure spa, use a Footsie Bath featuring clean, hygienic, disposable liners to ensure cleanliness for each and every client!
    A little extra effort will go a long way with your clients - and your profits!

    The Sanitary Way To Use Buffing Blocks

    One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to having a manicure or pedicure is a heavily-used buffing block. I have had technicians use a block that that is crumbling or falling apart. Even if it is in decent condition, buffing blocks are susceptible to bacteria and fungi, just like all the other nail implements that are used.
    A great option for sanitary and aesthetic purposes are the Star Nail Mini Buffing Blocks. Each package contains 24 buffing squares for only $2.66, thus making them extremely cost effective. Simply use one square per client and throw away when finished! The grit on the blocks is 100/200, so it also meets you course and fine buffing needs. Your clients will appreciate your sanitary approach and you will be protecting your business.

    What other changes can you make to make your salon or spa more sanitary?
