Dirty Nails Harbor Nasty BacteriaImproper hand hygiene can lead to the spread of infection and contamination and there’s one hot spot that breeds pure nastiness.  

Acting like ten catch-traps, fingernails and the fingers can easily hoard and transport icky gunk such as bacteria, fungus and yeast.

Proper and regular cleaning is critical for good health and sanitary conditions. The CDC suggests fingernails be kept short, and the undersides should be cleaned frequently with soap and water.

Because of their length, the longer fingernails often harbor more dirt and bacteria than short nails, thus potentially contributing to the spread of infection.

For effective hand hygiene and clean nails, the following personal care items will get the job done.

Used in conjunction with water and soap, manicure or fingernail scrub brushes are an easy way to prevent the spread of germs and nail infections.  Nail clippers easily keep the nails short. Emery boards are typically used for shaping and grinding down the edge of the nails after trimming while manicure sticks are used to gently push back the cuticles and deep clean under the nail beds.

These grooming utensils are ideal long term care facilities, rehab centers, hosptials, nursing homes, farms, food processing, clean rooms, nail salons, spas and are often used in many industrial applications as well.
