Recently I’ve been getting into natural nail soaks, specifically DIY home remedy/kitchen recipes. I have been testing out different ones and I’m pleasantly surprised that most of them actually work! I gathered my favorite recipes and literally have a nail soak for every type of nail problem. Here are soaks for two of the most common nail problems.
1. Yellow, or stained nails?
Stain Remover Soak
- Hydrogen peroxide
Directions: Apply hydrogen peroxide to cotton balls then let sit them on the nail beds for 3-5 minutes or until stains are removed. Rinse well, then apply a good cuticle oil. Hydrogen peroxide can be drying, so please do not use this method more then once per week!
Nail Whitener Soak
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons warm water
Directions: Mix juice and water in a glass or ceramic bowl. Soak nails 10 minutes or until stains are removed. Rinse well, then apply a good cuticle oil. Lemon juice is a great natural bleach for getting yellow stains out!
