Cleaning dirt from under fingernails on shabbos


Is there any issue such as borer with removing dirt under fingernails on Shabbos?



It is permitted to clean out the dirt from underneath one’s fingernail, however we have to be careful only to remove the dirt under the nail, and not to scrap away any of the nail itself.

Best wishes


באור הלכה סימן קסא סעיף א ד”ה הוא צריך וז”ל “הוא צריך לנקרן – ובשבת ג”כ מותר לגרר הטיט שתחת הצפורן בצפרנו רק שלא יגרור את הצפורן [א”ר ודה”ח]”:
