How to Use Baby Powder to Remove Beach Sand

Posted by TinyTotties on 14. May 2013 14:12

As a parent we've all been there. You've had a great day with your kids at the beach and when it came to cleaning and drying off you just can't get rid of the sand. The car ride home is constant complaining from your kids that they still have sand in their toes and it hurts. I just discovered a great secret that I was able to put into use this Mother's Day.

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to spend Mother's Day at the beach with my family. It was SO much fun! A friend of mine had told me to pack a travel size bottle of baby powder in my beach bag. Then at the end of the day, all you have to do is rub the baby powder on their skin. Simple as that! The sand will rub right off. AMAZING stuff! It leaves my babies nice and soft! AND most importantly… sand-free!

Basically what happens is that the baby powder removes moisture from your skin and allows for the sand to easily come off. It works on hair, feet, and legs. Once you try it, you won’t want to head to the beach without it. Even my husband used it!

If you don’t like using baby powder or prefer using something more natural, you can also use cornstarch and it works just as well.
