If you prefer the darker nail polish colors such as red, burgundy, or brown you may have noticed that brown stains are left on the nails once the polish is removed. The stain will be even more pronounced if you have neglected to use a protective base coat.
Fingernail stains can be problematic to remove but here are six proven methods to help you with the dilemma.
1. Tooth Whitening Strips
The compounds in tooth whitening strips can work on your nails just as well as they do on your teeth. Cut the strips into small pieces and let them do their thing for about 10 minutes. When finished, remove the strips and wash your hands in warm water.
A tablespoon of bleach mixed in a cup of water is a great nail whitener. Simply make the mixture and then soak your nails for a few minutes. Then take an old toothbrush and gently scrub the nails to remove any stains.
Take a lemon and cut it in half. Soften up the pulp and then insert your fingers into the lemon and swish them in the lemon pulp for about 5 minutes. The lemon juice will act like a mild bleach on the stains.
4. Whitening Toothpaste
Massage a little whitening toothpaste into your nails with your fingertips. Once you are done, use a damp nailbrush and give the nails a light scrub to get rid of any stains left over from the nail polish. Take care to not cause any damage to your nails. When you are finished scrubbing, rinse off any residue with water.
5. Hydrogen Peroxide And Baking Soda Mix
Purchase a small bottle of hydrogen peroxide at the pharmacy if you don’t already have some. Mix four tablespoons of the hydrogen peroxide with three tablespoons of baking soda. Be prepared as it may fizz up. Using a toothbrush, dip in the mixture and scrub your nails. You should notice an immediate change.
Lemon juice can make an excellent substitute for hydrogen peroxide if you’d rather use something a little more natural and gentle.
6. Denture Cleansing Tablet
Drop a denture-cleansing tablet into a bowl with about three quarters of a cup of water. While the water is fizzing dip your nails in and leave them there for approximately 3 minutes. When you’re finished, rinse your hands with water.
