Preventing Dirt Under Your Finger Nails

Here's an old trick for people who don't like to use gloves when they garden. Rub your finger nails over a bar of soap. Your nails will fill up with the soap and prevent dirt from building up. When you clean up, scrub your nails with a nail brush to easily remove the soap.

That's a great idea. I always have discolored nails after a day of gardening. Thanks! (03/09/2007)

Hi, I have been doing this for years. I am an avid gardener and also have acrylic nails on. The soap method is great! (03/09/2007)
