Yuck! What's Growing In the Water At Your Local Nail Salon?

What: Pediclear Spa Disinfectant $24.99 (12 packets)

Why: So we usually consider a pedicure to be a safe, relaxing, and stress-free indulgence, right? Well, not to burst everyone’s bubble, but apparently we have to stay on our toes even while they are being painted.  Although you can always control what polish goes on your nails, neither you nor your pedicurist can help what goes in your water. Believe it or not, as clean as that pedi-basin may be, the water itself has yet to be disinfected, and harmful bacteria can thrive despite the force of those water jets. 

Until now. Pediclear is an FDA-approved foot spa disinfectant that gets rids of potentially harmful bacteria that could ruin a beautiful pedicure. So why not give both yourself and your feet some extra protection from unwanted germs by bringing some Pediclear on your next visit? Each individual package is the size of a stick of gum, and you just kindly ask your nail technician to add to the water as she starts your foot bath. If this is a bit intimidating, Pediclear provides a small salon info card which explains exactly what the product is about. I felt a tad shady as I handed over the package, but surprisingly enough, my pedicurist knew exactly what it was without needing an explanation. It made for a much more relaxed experience knowing my feet were safe, sound, and soon to be beautiful.
