Home Remedies for Healthy Nails

Do your nails have weird-looking cuticles or do your hands feel as hard as a pumice rock? Maybe it’s because you give your hands too much stress or that your nails are not properly cared for. So how can you take care of your fingernails and toenails naturally? Read on! We have here a list of simple tips on taking care of your precious fingernails and toenails.

  • Baking Soda. To whiten fingernails & toenails, add three TBL baking soda to 1/2 cup warm water. Soak your nails in the solution for 15 minutes. Then softly brush across each nail with a nailbrush.
  • Bounce. Rubbing your fingernails with a Bounce dryer sheet removes nail polish without nail polish remover.
  • ChapStick. Condition dry, cracked cuticles by rubbing on ChapStick Lip Balm.
  • White Vinegar. Soften cuticles by filling a bowl with White Vinegar and soaking your fingers in it for 5 minutes. Also, fingernail polish will adhere longer to nails that have been soaked in vinegar.
  • Marshmallows. Polish your toenails by placing a marshmallow between each toe before painting them.
  • Baby Oil. Soften brittle nails by warming a few TBL of baby oil and soaking your nails in it for 10 minutes.
  • Listerine. Treat toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine 4 times daily for a couple of weeks. Listerine is an antiseptic that kills germs.
  • Miracle Whip. To strengthen your nails, soak them in Miracle Whip for 5 minutes, then wash them clean.
  • Coppertone Tanning Lotion. To soften brittle fingernails, warm 3 tsp of Coppertone, and use it as a hot-oil treatment.
  • Orajel. If you’re suffering from an ingrown toenail, apply Orajel to numb the tissue around the nail so you can work on it.
  • Vicks VapoRub. Treat toenail fungus by applying a thick coat of Vicks VapoRub to the affected nail several times a day.
