Cleaning and Whitening Finger Nails

To clean and whiten finger nails - dip in bleach - wash hands with soap and warm water. Really works.

Editor's Note: This does work but I'd recommend at least a 3 parts water to one part bleach and be careful not to breathe in the fumes.

A little safer is Hydrogen peroxide and a cotton swab. I discovered this while whitening my teeth and it dribbled ;)

You can use a whitening pencil sold in the manicure/pedicure section of all drug stores. It is not as pretty, but works in a tight pinch!

Another Very good way to clean nails - will also bleach out colour from old nail polish. Just soak your nails in lemon juice - Real Lemon is fine. This is sasfe, the smell isn't overpowering and it works like a charm

Lemon juice works the same way. It can also be combed thru your hair just before you sit in the sun to help lighten it.

I have also used lemon juice- instead of the bleach- @ 30 seconds to a minute then soap and water.

diluted bleach works pretty well for me. I am a scenic artist at Seaworld and use a lot of earth tone colors. I'm not one for wearing gloves when I am sponging on these colors so my nails usually end up looking pretty nasty. I scrub them with soap and water and when I get home I put a little bleach and water in the sink and soak my fingers for a few seconds. It works.
