Soften Toenails For Easier Trimming

Trimming toenails gets tougher as they thicken.
Medical experts offer some tips to make your job easier.
– Soak your feet. Soften your toenails by soaking them in warm water.
– File. Towel dry and gently stroke the surface of the thickened toenail with an emery board to
thin the nail.
– Use the right clippers. Long-handled toenail clippers that resemble small pliers or wire cutters
provide a better grip and more control.
– Take small clips. Cut off a small piece at a time.
– Make a straight cut. Cut straight across your toenail, without rounding the corners, to reduce
the chance that the corners will become ingrown.
– Wear roomy shoes. Leaving enough room for your toes can alleviate friction and wear that can
cause a nail to thicken.
