Great machine, ridiculous refill price, do it yourself
on 26 March 2013
The micro pedi machine is brilliant, it works perfectly, however the rollers run out very quickly and at this price it's just not worth it. SOLUTION buy a sheet of 120 grit sandpaper and a roll of double sided sticky tape, appx £2. Peel off the blue or pink abrasive on the micro pedi rollers (they can actually be levered apart to make it easier), you'll find there are two pieces but you will replace with one long piece. Cut a rectangle of sandpaper long enough to hook into the gap between the two sides of the roller and then to roll all the way round to meet the other end. It must be wide enough to fit between the edges. Then cut 3 pieces of double sided tape, stick on your sandpaper rectangle, remove the second side of the tape and your ready.
Turn on your pedi and check which way the roller rotates, you need to ensure your new rectangle is hooked into the slot and the loose end rotates smoothly without catching, its very simple and there are only two options. Hook one end of your rectangle into the slot then smooth the rest round the roller, bingo it's done. After you have done a couple it takes about a minute, cost is less than 5p max per roller, quicker, cheaper, simpler, more choice as you can choose the grit on the paper.
Again, the machine is GREAT it works brilliantly and it's very cost effective if you make your own refills.
