  • Keep her nails short and just give her a bath.
    Getting dirt under your finger nails just requires you to live a daily life. It doesn't mean you or your house is dirty either.

  • I would just keep my sons cut short and I would make sure I soaked them when he got a bath.

  • Usually when you give the baby a bath much of the dirt comes clean with soap and water. Maybe taking a wash cloth to the hands will loosen the dirt.

  • yeah, soak her hands in the water when bathing her. or you could rub underneath them with one or your short nailed fingers.
