METAL PUSHER [met-l, poosh-er]
What it is: A metal implement with a spoon-shaped end, used to gently push back the eponychium to expose the excess cuticle attached to the nail plate.
How to use: Used at the start of each service to gently push back the surrounding skin to expose the nail plate. Some pushers have a scraping end, shaped like half of a nail nipper, that can gently scrape away the dead skin to clean the nail plate.
How to clean: Scrub with soap and water, and dry. Then submerge in hospital grade disinfectant.
How to store: After disinfection and sanitization, store covered, in a clean dry area.
