How to avoid getting dirt under your nails


Whether you don’t own a pair of gloves or you simply enjoy getting your hands dirty, it’s no easy task to get your nails clean after gardening. But there’s a simple solution right at your fingertips:

Before you start gardening, lightly scratch a bar of soap to form a buildup under your nails. The soap will act as a barrier against the dirt and will wash away easily after you’re done.
