There is a soak thing they can use at home...Bubble white ...? Sally's do it. Other than that one my ladies swears by toothpaste but not very proffesional...i'd go with the bubble white...you could stock up on some from Sally's and retail it.

I had a client who used to soak her nails in Steredent denture cleaner
But I recomend the bubble white, if they want to do the job themselves and a fine cone shaped e-file bit if you are doing it

WEll .............. I'm going to have to disagree with recommending the efile treatment and for very good reasons.

Using an efile under the free edge of the natural nail is one of the biggest causes of onycholysis in clients. You are ineffect breaking the epidermis by filing it away (as this is what is stained) and when you do that you risk detaching the eponychium or breaking it and resulting onycholysis and possibly worse.

Nail Brite is another product that you can retail to your clients for home use (no way as a professional would I recommend a DIY home treatment). Nail Brite has been around for 25 years or more and is a great product. Sort of like Jiff for nails It also comes with a great nail brush (best I've ever used) to use with it.

YUP, Nail brite ROCKS!! Instant results every time!
My clients are in love with it (particularly smokers) and I can't keep it on the shelf

I agree with Gigi about the e-file.
Also... we go to all that trouble NOT to overfile the nail in the first place, so why file it to remove dirt?

Unfortunately, my distributor ceased carrying it (no idea why) and I now have to look elsewhere. I have one client telling me she wants a case (and the funny part is she's SERIOUS).

Too bad sweet squared is so far from me :-(
