But using Lemon on your nails provides a lot more than just a gentle clean. It actually whitens them. This is why this method is so effective, and in this article I’d like to outline the process steps so that you can get your nails all cleaned up and whitened in no time at all. If you have discoloration of your nails, then using this method is a great place to start. However, if you believe, or have been advised that you have nail fungus, or suspect it to be the case, then I would suggest you read our article instead by clicking here. Why You Need To Clean Your Nails in the First Place Now I’m sure that by arriving on this article you will know the importance of cleaning your nails regularly. However, if you are yet to fully understand its importance; keeping your nails nice and clean is essential for several reasons:Nail Polishes and other Nail Products may secretly be still on your nails, causing damage or effecting their appearance and how they visually look. Keep your Nails robust, and to ensure that the natural and essential oils are able to do their work and help to strengthen and grow your nail beds and cuticles. For Hygiene purposes.Why Use Lemon? Now, before I actually outline the steps, using Lemon is a fantastic option for a multitude of reasons. Its a great place to start before you invest in a natural chemical free nail polish remover. If you’re not quite yet convinced as to why you would want to use it here’s why:It is very cheap and easy to find – you can pick one up at your local grocery store. It does not contain harsh chemicals that are often found in Nail Products (which damage your nails over time and prevent their strength, causing them to become brittle, likely to snap and preventing growth) Its contains compounds like Vitamin C, Protein and Potassium which is very effective at resorting moisture and returning your nails to their natural color. Lemons contain natural antibacterial and anti-fungal that can kill germs under fingernails or the border area between the nail and finger. Acidic lemon juice is a great way to strip away stains from your nails.So now we know the main benefits of cleaning and using Lemon to do this, now lets outline the steps How To Clean Nails With Lemon The following is part of my nails routine that I do weekly to keep my nails strong and looking good. This is the one thing I do to keep my nails white, so I would suggest that you follow this routine yourself at least once a week. Whilst doing this will instantly clean your nails, by doing this on a more regular basis you will start to see noticeable improvements in the natural color of your nails. This is because Lemons contain acidic properties which will dissolve away stain particles; the water will then help with the  removal of those particles from the surface of your nails. Step One: Firstly, you will need to purchase yourself a Lemon. If you wanted to make the process even simpler, then I would actually suggest you go out and purchase some Lemon Juice (pre-squeezed and pressed lemon) The following outlines using Lemon Juice, but I will also turn to just using a regular lemon afterwards. With Lemon Juice Step Two:  Use four tablespoons of lemon juice and put them into a small dish. Step Three: Now add 1 tablespoon of warm water to your dish containing your Lemon Juice. Step Four: Now take one of your hands, and soak your nails into your lemon and water dish. Soak for at least 10 minutes.var quads_screen_width = document.body.clientWidth; if ( quads_screen_width >= 1140 ) { /* desktop monitors */ document.write(''); (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); }if ( quads_screen_width = 1024 && quads_screen_width < 1140 ) { /* tablet landscape */ document.write(''); (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); }if ( quads_screen_width >= 768 && quads_screen_width < 1024 ) { /* tablet portrait */ document.write(''); (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); }if ( quads_screen_width < 768 ) { /* phone */ document.write(''); (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); }Sometimes you may have to soak for up to 15 minutes but usually 10 minutes will do the job. Please note: the longer you soak, the better your results will be for a whitening effect. If you are following this tutorial simply for clean nails, then 5-10 minutes should be enough. Step Five: Now repeat the process for your other hand, simply dip your nails into the dish and leave and let soak for the time required (less for cleaning, more for whitening) Step Six: Take out your nails from the lemon-juice solution and rinse your hands under warm water to remove the remaining Lemon Juice from your nails. Step Seven:  At this point, what you want to do is put on a good, natural Cuticle Oil on all of your nails across both hands. This will really help to provide the materials that your nails need to thrive. I try to follow the above at least two times a week so that I can keep my nails clean and also to ensure that they are as white as possible. This is also a great alternative to using a file, because if you do this too often this can cause your nails to thin out and potentially snap and break. Sometimes you will notice, that depending on how dirty your nails are, that soaking may take more or less time, but you can adjust this accordingly to suit you. The times above are more rough and average times that have worked for me and some of my clients. If you have a larger dish available, whereby you can fit both hands in, you can also speed up the process and soak two hands at a time. If you decide to do this, remember to double the amount of Lemon Juice to ensure it is not too diluted (8 Tablespoons instead of 4) With a Lemon Now, you may not have Lemon Juice available in your house, or you may even find that want to juice your own Lemon as it is more cost-effective. That is fine and works just as well too! You actually have two options if you decide to use a Lemon.You can cut the Lemon in two and press the juice into a small dish (essentially you are creating the Lemon Juice yourself and are just undertaking the juicing process) You can cut a Lemon in half, and then use each half for each hand.For option 1, you will simply juice into a dish and then follow the steps above (add 1 tablespoon of warm water, soak your nails, wash your hands, apply cuticle oil) For option 2, you can simply dig your nails from each hand into each lemon half. As water has not been added to dilute the lemon juice, you will actually find that this method is actually a lot stronger. You will therefore not have to ‘soak’ for as long with this technique. This method is also quite messy and you will find that it is quite awkward to hold the Lemon half in place for the time required to clean your nails (5 minutes or so).You can also dip a Cotton Ball or Swab into the Lemon and rub over your nails if you preferred to do this, but in my experience this just takes too long. Final Thoughts Following this Nail Cleaning Lemon Technique is a great primer and thing to do before you paint your nails with a fresh new coat. Or, you can always just add a little topcoat and wear them nude. Its up to you but with this technique you will find that your nails are in a lot better shape than before! This is just one part of my nail routine that ensure that I keep my nails clean, white, strong and healthy.
