WOW... ladies you have to be careful and check out the nail salon you go to! Over 100 nail salons were flagged for unsanitary practices in Washington state! While 12 of those shops had been placed on probation twice!
Nail salons are graded on a scale of 0 to 100 and they must get an 86 to pass, anything less and they are slapped with a fine!
- New tools mixed with used ones (for example buffers and files)
- Dirty foot spas
- Used spoons and sticks found in wax or scrubs
- Gloves/towels used on one client and re-used on another
- Unsanitary waxing beds
Salons that are put on probation must have a safety training, pay fines and get more frequent inspections. They have to pass two inspections in a row to be taken off of probation!
