How to use your wood foot file / paddle for best results

getting the best results from your wood foot file / paddle is simple if you follow these simple guidelines:

Choose the best quality wood foot file / paddle you can find - we recommended the Nancy K Brown Wood Foot File / Paddle that:

  • is the exact same foot / pedicure file, of the exact same quality used in salons / spas and by foot care / pedicure professionals
  • is solid wood construction
  • thick enough so you can use some force and it will not snap
  • ergonomically shaped to fit comfortably in your hand and does not have sharp edgeswood foot file, two sided, solid wood, washable and disinfectable by Nancy K Brown
  • is waterproof                                                                                     
  • has two different grit surfaces:
    • rough surface for the hard work
    • finer surface for the detail work
  • can be properly cleaned and disinfected
  • is long lasting



  1. START by using your dry wood foot file / paddle on dry feet with the ROUGH FILING SURFACE (the English language side) first:
    • remove the rough, flaking callus from your feet, beginning at the heel and moving forward to the ball of the feet
    • remove callus from the sides of your feet   Foot care tools and products by Nancy K Brown
    • remove callus from your toes and from in between your toes
    • IMPORTANT: make certain not to be too aggressive - leave some callus - as this acts as a cushion when walking and protects your feet
  2. WASH your feet thoroughly
  3. SMOOTH and POLISH: wet your wood foot file / paddle and with the FINER FILING SURFACE (the French language side):
    • file to polish feet to a smooth velvery soft finish
  4. WASH your feet thoroughly
  5. FINISH: massage your favourite foot creme, such as the Foot Repair / Maintenance Creme by Nancy K Brown, into your feet to moisturize and condition.
