How to keep your nails clean when gardening

Gardening gloves are sometimes awkward, and rubber gloves are plain odd in the garden.

I don’t like getting soil right under my nails, though, as it takes so long to clean out. What I do is stick a bar of soap under the warm tap then run my nails down the length of the bar.

That way, the space under the nails is taken up and there’s no spare room for the dirt! Good, too, for little ones when they’re painting or making mud pies.

Afterwards, just take a wet nailbrush gently along the undersides.
