I'm thinking about this because I spent another day planting seeds. Even using potting soil, my fingernails and cuticles are taking a beating. The potting soil isn't so bad, but I don't even want to know what I might be digging in outside when I know I have improved the soil with chicken and cow manure. Cleaning up is really important. Colloidal Silver Soap is what I like to use. Any nice moisturizing soap (love the french milled soaps) could be used, but, it has to be a bar soap. I like the colloidal silver soap because it is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and moisturizing.
|I buy mine at the health food store.|
This is what I do, make my hand into a "claw" and dig into the bar of soap, so the soap gets up
under my fingernails. Then use my nail brush. A good way to clean under those fingernails just before making supper :-)
P.S. I planted perennial daisy, pink wave petunia, basil, purple verbena, parsley, fenugreek (playing around with it to see if it could be a supplement grain for chickens), and more gogi berry. Looking like a greenhouse around here......
