You can get them done professionally but here are some easy homemade tricks. These tips work and give you results. However, if you have really stubborn stains, seek a professional.
First of all, take a cotton ball, soak it in nail polish remover and rub it on your nails until they are completely clean. Take a nail buffer and lightly buff your nails to clean the surface. Lemon juice is known to remove stains. It also works to whiten yellow nails. Simply apply lemon juice on your nails or rub them directly. You can apply it at nighttime and rinse in the morning. You can also rub leftover squeezed lemons on your nails. Mix lemon juice and baking soda. Apply this paste on your nails and lightly massage. Toothpaste removes stains from your teeth and it also helps to clean stained nails. Use an old tooth-brush or denture brush to brush your nails with toothpaste. Never use a filer, especially a metal filer to remove stains as it weakens your nails. Take good care of your nails and keep them clean as it’s an important part of your hygiene.
