Looking Affordabler Single Use Files for Pedicure
#1
Hello,
I'm looking for nail files for our pedicures that are affordable enough to throw out after each client. We sanatize them with Ultronics, but I still think a new file with each client is the best way to go. I need to get the okay from my boss but needed some options to start with. Also how about the Buffer Blocks????

THANKS, Kelly*

I use the peel-and-stick Pedi Pro file with Fine and Coarse grits:

I was using Heavenly Soles peel and stick fields by BackScratchers but the adhesive is a little too sticky - having to both disinfect and soak the handles in alcohol to get rid of the sticky got old very quickly!

I like the prosticks ones. They dont leave a sticky residue and they stay put for wet filing.

I like these for pedicures because they are small to work with and are .27 each. Register and you will see the price change if you add to cart. $13.97 for 50 ct.

If all you are doing is shaping the free edge of the toenails, why not try using a metal file? I have used an Erica Diamond File for years - both on mani & pedi services. You can disinfect it and it more than pays for itself in just a couple of months.

Edit: If I misread this and you are looking for a foot file to reduce callus, I would recommend the metal Angel Feet Foot File - disinfect between clients, similar to the files I mention above. Best of all, no waste.

I have been using both for the past 4 years and they are showing no signs of wearing out.

Since this post is a bit older I wondered what everyone is still using? I live in Canada and using a silkline stainless steel handle with disposable grits but frustrated with the lack of stock. I just ordered the prosticks nail files ( I have access to US delivery and will get them tomorrow) so thinking I will make the switch to the foot files. thanks!

 Reply

180 for toe nails, 240 for fingernails. We use a cheap 5 cents a file kind in the salon.
 Reply
#19
where do you get those files ?
 Reply
#20
I'll have to get the name when I'm at work tomorrow. It's a corporate high end salon so they are able to go directly to the source and get great prices.
