Introduction: Get Soft Hands and Healthy Finger Nails With Fabric Softener

Picture of Get Soft Hands and Healthy Finger Nails With Fabric Softener

Using this easy method, you can have hands as soft as a baby's tush and shiny, healthy fingernails. Soak your hands in a mixture of a little bit of fabric softener with a nice smell and warm-hot water. Only pour a tiny bit of fabric softener into the water, enough to cloud the water some. DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE ANY OPEN CUTS/WOUNDS BECAUSE IT IS NOT FOR INTERNAL USE. If you use a different kind than mine, check to make sure that it is ok to touch skin. I only know that MINE works for sure. If you do not have any softener i suggest trying to find my kind because a) i know it works and b) it is AWESOME for washing stuff- works great and is very good-smelling and softening. It's in the picture, but if you're unclear then ask in the comments and i will happily answer.
Optional:
-add marbles or something comparable to the bottom and relax your hand on them
-squeeze a few drops of lemon or lime juice for a citrus effect

I am intrigued by this idea, and wonder, if it does work, why. I am generally afraid of fabric softener, and avoid it, but maybe the ingredients in your brand are non-toxic?? Could you post the ingredients list?

I am searching to try and find a way to heal my paper-thin nails. Did you have normal nails when you started doing this, or were your nails thin and weak?

Thanks for posting your instructable.
