You know how there are some things you’d rather just stay in denial about? Like how many calories are in your favorite ice cream or whether or not your favorite jeans have gotten a bit too tight (it was the dryer, no seriously)? Well, some of those things are better left in the dark, but other things, well, we should just get to the bottom of. One of those things is the unsanitary conditions in Nail Salons (read articles about it from Oprah, Southern Living and Health.com). I love a good $30 mani/pedi as much as the next girl, but the facts are that those tools they’re using on you are more than likely contaminated with other people’s toe funk. And that, well that is just plain gross.
Enter the answer to all your salon problems, the PediPack. I can’t believe the genius behind this product (well, the company is operated by three women, so, I guess I know where the genius comes from) but how was this not available before? Anyways, here it is ladies, a small, portable, personal set of manicure and pedicure tools to take with you to the salon to ensure that the tools being used on you have only been used on you. The PediPack sells for only $40 and comes with everything listed below:
- Straight Line Deluxe Clipper
- Pedipack 120/120 Washable File
- Rubber Grip Professional Nipper
- European Blade Callous Remover
- Ergonomic, 2-Sided Professional File & Rasp
- 3 , 3 Triclosan Sanitizing Tablets
- 2, All-Wood Stick Mani/Pedi Pusher
- Pumi-Bar Pumice Stone
- 4-Sided Nail Buffer
- 5 inch Easy-grip Nail Brush
- Pedipack Toe Seperators
The website states that all the tools can be sanitized using hot water and bleach, and that the travel case is machine washable. Fabulous. So, now that we’ve solved the sanitation issue we just need to tackle the language barrier, because I really want to know what the nail techs are saying about me. Order your very own PediPack right here (and hey, there’s some on sale for $30 right here).
