How do you keep everything sterile?

Was a crazy fun experience. Yes, it was kept clean with a water flush after each patron. It’s obvious when seeing difference between fresh and not fresh water. The fish are just having a feast with everyone. BUT don’t get fooled by the price. Separate costs for fish time PLUS another cost for pedicure… total was actually $70.

Please note ,nothing here is sterile . you can catch fish TB or another fish borne disease from fish faeces. The water will contain disease or whatever from the last persons foot as the only way of sterilizing the water is to boil it and then you will kill the fish .Do not believe that the water has been sterilized as it is not going to happen ..If you want proffesional treatment on your feet see a Podiatrist who will use the correct tools and then destroy them or place them in a machine to clean them . Try this for an inexpensive remedy . Soak your feet for 15 minutes and then dry them with a towel .You will rub off more skin than the fish would have taken and it will cost you nothing ! And the reason your feet feel smoother ,,well you have had them in water thats why .
