Make sand vanish!

[ 2 ] July 12, 2007 |


I love to walk barefoot in the sand but I’m not so fond of bringing all that sand into my car or house. Getting sand off my feet or my kids’ tush before putting on a fresh diaper always seemed futile until a friend showed me the magic of baby powder. Sprinkle powder (I use Johnson’s Baby Powder with pure cornstarch) onto your feet or your kids’ tush and wipe off. The powder AND the sand disappear. I always keep a container in my car. Sometimes it is the simplest things that can make my day.

    There’s a new product, Powder Pouch, that holds and releases the powder so you can wipe the sand away.
