Mom Uses Baby Powder In Ways That Never Crossed My Mind - These Tips Are Brilliant!

January 25th, 2018

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.

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.
