At Dashing Diva,
we’re extra-cautious when it comes to your
safety and peace-of-mind. Here are some of the hygiene
and sanitation practices you can expect to find at every
Dashing Diva you visit … and why.
“Washing of Hands”
Before beginning each service, all Dashing Diva nail technicians
disinfect their hands with our special Fresh Clean™ liquid
sanitizer ... and ask you to do the same. This helps prevent
the spread of common germs.
Disposable Manicure/Pedicure Kits
To insure the highest level of sanitation, all Dashing Diva
customers receive a disposable “Manicure/Pedicure Kit”
each time they come in. The kit contains a brand new nail file,
sanding block and manicure stick, all of which are thrown away
at the end of your service. We never make you share files or
blocks with anyone else.
Metal Implements Sterilized
At Dashing Diva, we use a special heat-sterilization method
called "autoclaving" for all of our metal implements.
Autoclaving represents the highest level of sterilization and
is standard procedure at medical facilities in the U.S. (in
accordance with AMA, FDA and EPA guidelines), but is still relatively
rare in the nail salon world. After autoclaving, the implements
are placed into individual sealed, disposable, sanitation pouches
(just like you see at the dentist's office) and opened at the
start of each manicure or pedicure service.
Whirlpool Foot Baths
The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta issued guidelines
against whirlpool foot baths in 2001 because they are a breeding
ground for fortuitum (a microbacterium that causes boils on
the legs). If the filters are not cleaned after each service,
serious skin infections can develop. Why take the risk? In Dashing
Diva’s famed Pink Pedicure Lounge™, we soak your
tootsies in a modern ceramic sink that's quick and easy to disinfect
between customers … so you can relax and enjoy the experience.
Razors or Reusable Foot Files
Dashing Diva pedicures employ an equally effective, special
callus-sloughing tool with a brand new, disposable cup on the
end to assure maximum hygiene for each customer.
Disinfecting of Sinks and Tabletops
Throughout the day, we wipe down sinks
and tabletops with a special hospital-grade solution to remove
debris, kill bacteria, and prevent the spread of germs. Your
safety and comfort is our top priority.
