Baby powder is great to have in your house even if you don’t have a baby. But it usually comes in a giant container that can be hard to use up before the expiration date. Instead of being wasteful you can put that leftover talcum powder to use in other ways around the house.
Here are 15 uses for baby powder:
1) Prevent Chafing and Sweating
Rub some baby powder in areas where you tend to chafe or sweat to prevent discomfort.
2) Doggie Dry Bath
If you need to freshen up your dog in a pinch, you can rub one or two handfuls of baby powder into their coats and let it sit before you brush it out. This works great if you don’t have time to give Spot a bath.
3) Make Waxing Less Painful
Rub your skin with some baby powder before you wax the area to ease the pain. It will leave your skin smoother and reduce redness.
4) Get Rid of Grease
Rub some baby powder on a grease stain to soak up the oil before you toss it in the washing machine or scrub it with soap and water.
5) Have a Cool Sleep
Some sprinkle baby powder inside of their sheets to cool off during summer nights.
6) Dry Shampoo
If your hair is a little greasy, you can sprinkle a little bit of baby powder on your roots and brush it through to make it look less greasy.
7) Plump Eyelashes
Dust a little bit of baby powder onto your eyelashes before you apply mascara to make them look thicker and fuller.
8) Deodorize Shoes
Remove the stink from your shoes by sprinkling a little bit of baby powder inside of them.
9) Freshen Your Drawers and Closets
Keep a jar, dish, or sachet of baby powder in your closets, dressers, or drawers to get rid of any musty smells.
10) Help Your Garden Thrive
Shake your flower bulbs in a plastic bag filled with medicated baby powder before planting them. This will help prevent rot and keep moles and other pests at bay.
11) Makeshift Deodorant
If you want to freshen your armpits but don’t have deodorant you can use some baby powder on them instead.
12) Stop Creaky Floorboards
Sprinkle some baby powder in between your floorboards to prevent them from creaking.
