|Re-potted orchid & clean nails with |
indoor greenhouse in the background
Anyway, I was re-potting an overgrown orchid (above) and some spearmint I bought from the grocery store this afternoon and remembered a tip I got from a book on houseplants years ago. Before you begin working with the soil, slather your hands with lotion. Especially, gook lotion under your fingernails.
Then you can wash your hands easily without any residue left under your nails. Also hands don't dry out and nails are not likely to break or split.
