Cleaning files at home

Cleaning and disinfection of manicure and pedicure tools and animal nail files.

Necessary and mandatory step to avoid possible transmission of disease or infection.

Why clean up.

All Diamancel files, the Classic range, the new colored files and Sacha animal claws files have been manufactured with the same process and same material since 1994 in Montreal. We use fiberglass base not metal which makes them flexible and real diamond the abrasive which makes them so durable.

At home, when you use your nail file, your polisher to remove dry skin from your heels, or file your pet's claws, think about cleaning. Indeed, especially if several members of the family use them, it is very important to clean them to avoid the transmission of an infection, fungus ...

Cleaning diamond files is also key if you want them to last a lifetime.

Different ways to clean your manicure and pedicure tools as well as the Sacha pet nail file for home use.

For nail files , there is no need to clean them after each use, but about once a month. Take a small soft brush, soap and water, then brush gently to remove all the particles and nail dust embedded between the diamond grains. Rinse with water and dry naturally or with a hair dryer before storing your file in its case.


Diamancel recommends cleaning the rasps and polishers for foot calluses after each use. Use a small soft brush with soapy water, then rinse and dry in the open air or with a hair dryer. Store in the case.

For  SACHA Animal Claw File, clean it after use with soapy water using a small soft brush, then rinse and allow to air dry or with a hair dryer before putting away in its case.


All Diamancel files, rasps, buffers and Sacha claw files can be soaked in an antibacterial solution   such as alcohol for 10 minutes to be disinfected. Then you rinse with water and dry before storing in the case. Never soak in bleach.
