10 Genius Uses for Baby Powder You Never Knew About

Are you one of those people who think baby powder is just for babies and sweaty feet? Then you don’t know what you’re missing! Today Bright Side is going to tell you about inventive uses for cornstarch baby powder that you probably never considered.

1. Add volume to your lashes

After you put on your first coat of mascara, apply a bit of powder on the lashes using a Q-tip or a brush. Finish off with another coat of mascara. This trick will make your lashes look super long and voluminous.

2. Untangle your necklaces easily

Sprinkle a bit of cornstarch powder onto the knotted areas of your necklace, and gently rub the knots between your fingers and thumb to loosen them up.

3. Use it as a dry shampoo  

Use this trick when your hair is oily and greasy and you don’t have time to take a shower. Sprinkle a bit of baby powder on your hair, gently massage it into your roots and scalp, and then comb it through until the powder is no longer visible. With this alternative you can avoid washing your hair every day, keeping it healthier.

4. Remove oil stains from your clothes

To get rid of these stubborn stains, apply a little powder on both sides of the stained cloth, dab at the grease, and let it sit for an hour to allow the talc to absorb the oil. Finally, wash the garment, and let it dry in the shade.

5. Remove sand from your feet and shoes

An easy way to keep wet sticky sand at bay. Just sprinkle cornstarch powder over the areas where sand has stuck to you. Baby powder removes moisture from your skin, and the sand will fall right off. It also works for footwear: apply some cornstarch powder, and shake your shoes to remove all the sand. Now that you know this beach trick, you don’t have to worry about the sandy mess in your car anymore.

6. Refresh your sheets

This trick is perfect for hot nights. Sprinkle some baby powder between the sheets for freshness and a soothing, relaxing aroma that will help you sleep.

7. Make your leather clothing look fresh again

All you have to do to make your leather clothing look spick-and-span is to apply a little powder on the garment and rub with a soft microfiber cloth.

8. Beautify your pet’s coat

You can use cornstarch as a dry shampoo to care for your pet’s coat between washings. Sprinkle cornstarch powder directly onto your dog’s coat, and gently massage it into the skin. It is important to stay away from the eyes and nose area.

9. Enhance your waxing session
