Best Nail Clippers
Nail clippers are a handy tool that helps you keep your fingernails and toenails nicely trimmed. Look for clippers with sharp edges on the blades to ensure a quick and comfortable cut. You can find clippers in a variety of designs and sizes based on your needs. CVS Pharmacy offers a wide range of clippers from several brands to help you clip your nails to the perfect length. Many sets of clippers for the toenails are wider and larger than they are for the fingernails. Search for clippers made of high-quality materials like steel to ensure that they last a long time and don't become dull. Always disinfect your clippers after each use to prevent the spread of fungi and bacteria and use a separate set of clippers for your toenails and fingernails. CVS also offers a variety of products to maintain nail care including nail files, manicure and pedicure sets, and cuticle oils.
How to Use Nail Clippers
Nail grooming is a vital self-care routine. The correct nail clipping technique can help prevent common issues like hangnails and ingrown toenails. Well-trimmed and manicured nails are less likely to harbor dirt and bacteria, which can cause an infection.
• Baths and showers help to soften the nails. Trim your nails right after a bath or shower, which makes them easier to cut. Or, soak your nails in lukewarm water for a few minutes to soften them.
• Use the proper tools. Use a nail clipper for the fingernails and a toenail-specific clipper for the toes.
• After trimming fingernails, use a nail file or emery board to smooth the corners and rough edges. It helps prevent snagging on clothing or furniture.
• When trimming toenails, cut straight across to reduce the chances of developing an ingrown toenail.
• Clean and disinfect the clippers regularly.
How to Clean Nail Clippers
Over time, nail clippers can accumulate buildup that makes them unsanitary. Invisible bacteria and fungus can be transferred from toe to toe by dirty clippers. Clean and disinfect your clippers regularly to prevent this. One effective way to clean nail clippers is to sterilize them with heat, such as in boiling water. Another way is using a disinfectant with manual cleaning techniques, a convenient way to ensure the clippers are clean and ready for use.
First scrub the clippers, since buildup tends to accumulate in nooks and crevices. Clean with a small stiff bristle brush, like a toothbrush, to access narrow spaces easily. Changing the angle and direction of brushing will help to remove buildup. Then, soak in a suitable cleaning solution or disinfectant to loosen or dissolve buildup. A medical-grade disinfectant will be more effective against a wide range of bacteria than other disinfectants. Alternatively, you can use 70% or higher alcohol de uso externo, such as isopropanol, readily available at the pharmacy. Completely submerge the clippers. Generally, the longer the clippers are soaked, the greater the effect of the cleaning solution or disinfectant. Afterward, rinse the clippers and dry them thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth or paper towel, or allow them to air dry.
Can You Use Nail Clippers on Pets?
There are special pet nail clippers that are designed especially for dogs and cats. Nail clippers intended for human use are not appropriate for use on pets in most cases. These clippers resemble pliers and are made robust for trimming thick dog nails. Care, technique, and practice are required to trim pet nails safely, as there is a risk of accidentally cutting the 'quick,' which can cause bleeding and discomfort.
