When I get a pedicure, nothing matters more to me than cleanliness. I want to see that the tools are soaking in sterile solution and that the pedicure spa tub is sparkling before the water is added.
I once saw an aesthetician use the same cuticle scissors on two different people without cleaning them. I think we have to be cautious customers. I've walked out of so-called reputable salons because they don't have enforced sanitary practices.
