Everyday viruses -- such as those that cause colds and flu -- are easily spread through the daily contact of hands. Everything from a business handshake to a manicure can spread disease. Since your nail technician is in direct contact with your hands, and others, they are more likely to transmit viruses and other contagious diseases. Nail technicians should always have the following at the their stations, or nearby, for hand sanitation purposes: antibacterial hand soap or gel, a waterless hand sanitizer or antiseptic solution, and rubbing alcohol for sterilization.
