    Whiten Your Stained Finger Nails in No Time

  1. 1

    Remove any nail polish or other items that are on your stained nails. This will give you a base to start whitening them.

  2. 2

    Fill a shallow bowl half way with peroxide. Make sure there is enough to cover both hands when they are submerged to properly whiten your stained fingernails.

  3. 3

    Place both hands in the bowl. Allow all stained fingernails to be completely covered so that they will whiten.

  4. 4

    Soak your stained fingernails in the peroxide for 10 minutes to whiten them.

  5. 5

    Remove your hands from the peroxide. Wash and dry them thoroughly.

Tips and warnings

  • This process may need to be repeated a few times before deep stains on fingernails are removed.
  • Peroxide will dry out the skin of your hands. Only do this procedure once a week. Moisturise hands if they seem to be getting too dry.
