Dear Friends,

If any of you get pedicures, beware.  I went to a fairly upscale salon for a twice a year indulgence.  It was wonderful...Swirling hot water, vibrating warm chair, foot and leg massage, pretty abalone shell nail color...Left very relaxed...in 2 days one of my toes kinda hurt..I rubbed it, it felt like there was a splinter in it...Long story short, a painful infection the MD said was no doubt from the pedicure.  I had to do foot soaks 4 times a day and I am on antibiotics, it is finally much better after 1 week.I am through with salon pedicure.  Will do my own...maybe teach DH how to paint nails...Some people say to take your own tools, but I am not even brave enough for that.

Beware!

It is extremely important to make sure they clean their instruments after every pedicure - I prefer to see them take the instruments out of solution before they use them on me, and the place I go to does.  I can't give up my pedi's, it's the one luxury I allow myself (being self-employed and trying to build a client base, I don't have much disposable income yet - but my feet are on public display in many classes I take, so I want them to be pretty, as pretty as feet can be.  Aphrodite's Pink Nighty is my favorite color!).

I have heard horror stories about the mass produced salons. I only go to a well known salon that sterilizes every bit of equipment and sterilizes the sink as well.
I feel safe.

She certainly does!



The color names are a hoot!  I Am Really Not A Waitress (red) is their most popular color. There's even a book about the colors and the names.

Suzi Sells Sushi by the Seashore

Melon of Troy

You're a Pisa Work

They surely do have fun with those names!  cheesy

Where I go for my pedicure the people are very sanitary!
Every time, right before they get started on my toes they ALWAYS change the grinding wheel on their dremel..They even wear surgical masks so the toenail dust doesnt go up their noses. When they're all done they pour hydogen peroxide on my feet to foam away all the debris!

Ok,...you girls knew THAT was coming, didnt you?!
your friend,
john 

Hmm,..You know I was kidding, right?

Sharon, OMG, you have got to be kidding.  You will never in a million years believe this.  My Daughter and her Husband came down for the weekend to celebrate his 40th.  Heavens to mergatroid!!!!  She gave both my Husband and I a gift for our upcoming 27th anniversary on February 14th.  You will never, ever believe what she gave us both......I am cringing now and almost falling over in disbelief.

A gift certificate to a very well known beauty salon in our town for a ....... pedicure.  Eeeks and more eeks and more eeks.  What are we gonna do?  Hee, hee, go for that pedicure I guesss.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day, love our life.  Cindi

If they are a reputable place, they know how to do it right. You can ask them though if they sanitize all the instruments and the sink where you place your feet.

I am sure you will be fine. Go with a different color. Last summer I tried something different. One time I did light blue that was so beautiful. One time I did gold color. One time I did light green. Oh and once purple. They were fun.

Heavens to mergatroid!!!!
It's been a LONG time since I've heard that phrase! Thanks for the laugh. I never could figure out what a 'mergatroid' was!

Your hubby is getting a pedicure too?!  I'd do just about anything for my wife, but I don't think she could ever drag me to some salon for a pedicure! Do they really use a dremel for the guys? Smiley

Indtypartridge.  Yep, both of us are going for the pedicure.  My Husband is so sure of himself, he could even wear pink coloured clothes if he wanted to, he is not afraid of anything, hee, hee (except me when I get mad at him, then he runs for the hills, good things come in small packages, and they can be pretty powerful too, hee, hee, just kidding).  With any luck we will be seated side by side and we can gaze into each others eyes, holding hands, dreaming of the night time when we can rub our feet together without any horrible abrasion.  His feet are so caloused it looks like he has another foot growing on the bottom of his feet, I actually don't even know why he wears shoes, he already has built in shoes.  Ooops, that was not nice, hee, hee, I am exaggerating a little bit, only a slight little bit.  Yep, I think they will need a really big dremmel for his feet.  They don't know what they are in for.  Now my feet, they are pretty, I pumice them all the time so that will make up for the monster feet of my Husband, those poor girls, they should have seen it comin'.  Have an awesome day, love our earth.  Cindi

Ha!  If I could give my wife a perm a few weeks ago, I think your DH could do a pedicure.

I'm not an enlightened male, I just wanted to save $50  rolleyes  I can now roll a mean curler!!

Johnny, I can just see you "clipping" your toenails with a bench grinder! sparks flying everywhere and the grinder wheel breaking....

Okay so here is what you might tell them...do not trim or push back the cuticle ( the cuticle is a barrier to prevent bacteria from entering the area )...you can take your own instruments with you..make sure they have poured a disinfectant cleaner in teh bowl and down the drain.

read this article:  http://www.almadentimes.com/121604/ped_infec.htm

This happened in the town where I work, I know 2 people who suffered from this infection...

If I get brave enough to go back for a pedicure, I will enjoy the foot bath, massage of feet and legs, and painting of toenails, no cutting, trimming or filing.

Also do not shave your legs for a good 5-7 days before you go...if you have freshly shaved legs, the follicles are more open to infection...

Right after you finish your back.  Make sure that you have a full pack of razors.

As a nurse told my dad when prepping him for a heart stress test "This looks like a double-razor job".  And she said the same thing for the same test 2 years later!!

i think i'll leave my feet to the daily mud bath that they get.  that, and the sauna and chlorine dip in the hot tub at the club.  the idea of sitting there while someone sands my feet makes me feel the urge to kick something  smiley

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
