I have tried 3 different brands of lint free wipes to use to remove polish and to dehydrate and cleanse the nail bed prior to fills. I am finding that there is no such thing as a lint free wipe, or is there? Can someone please tell me a brand of lint free wipes that are truly "lint free" so that I can stop the madness? Sick of having lint in my polish and acrylic that I have to pull out. Thanks a bunch! :rolleyes:

I LOOOVE Hands Down pads. No Lint. I have not had a problem with them. In a bind I use gauze pads. If you are getting fuzzies, it might be your finish work- too rough around the edges maybe?

I know what you are talking about:lol:

The only ones I have tried that are completely 'lint free' In my opinion are the pads from Ezflow to use with their Gel It range. The only down side is they can be expensive.

I tend to make my own, by cutting a waxing strip up ....not abit of flick in sight (a tip from Amber:hug:).

Hi :) If you use paper ones then is it really removing the oils from the nail?

I like caress lint free pads from sally's. Cheep, effective and easy to buy locally.

Oooh I didn't read the original post properly:o

I use paper waxing strips for wiping my gel brushes on and like Angie I use the Caress pads from Sally's:)
