The ultimate guide
The ultimate guide to foot files was created because there are so many foot files on the market of differing size, shapes, and material. It can be difficult to choose which one is the best for you. They each work different, and it’s mostly about preference.
Metal Files are manufactured from stainless steel or nickel which is strong and resistant to rusting. Some metal files come with removable footpads. These often sell for a more than other files mentioned.
- Motorized files are the newest to the market. They used to be used only by pedicurists because they were expensive. At home, styles have become widely available and have a wide variety of options. Make sure you read the manufacturer’s website before purchasing one.
Plastic files are the least expensive. Plastic files are one of the most common types available. Grit is glued to the upper part of the file. These are usually quite flimsy and need to be replaced often. They come in many shapes and sizes.
Rasps are metal files that have a plastic handle and tiny blades like a cheese grater. Microplanes are the most effective rasp and works the best on cracked heels. You must be very careful with these as they can remove a lot of dead skin at once!
Wooden Files are usually built like a small paddle and are much sturdier than plastic files. The grit is sandpaper glued to the file. Make sure the file is hung to dry and doesn’t stay damp or it will get moldy or rotted.
Pumice stone is the oldest type of foot file. It is inexpensive and compact. Make certain to rinse after using and leave out to air dry.
