EVOO...THE NAIL SAVER
Had to share with you all a little something that I've been incorporating into my household work.
Granted we give the dishwasher a fair amount of attention, there are times when you just can't throw a dirty dish into that machine. Say for instance, caked on marinara sauce or some other organic item that really should've been scraped a whole lot better off of the plate. Just sayin'. These are the times where I break out the gloves to save my so-in-need-of-a-professional-manicure nails. But wait... not only do I break out the gloves, I also add some evoo to the mix. Yes.
Gosh, there are so many great uses to olive oil that its almost mind-bending. If you want to know more about it, check out Zainab1's (AuNaturale blogspot) post on this multi-use oil here. I've chosen to add the oil to my cuticles prior to putting on gloves. So far, this is proving to be of great benefit. The warmth from the dish water added to my body heat, gives my nails & cuticles a wonderful treatment. All while taking care of some business.
I'm not experiencing crazy splits and my nails aren't dry like they used to be. Gotta love it!
