5 Useful Baby Powder Hacks You Never Heard of

If your child has outgrown the baby powder phase and you still have lot of supplies in your stock, you don't have to worry about wasting it. There are some amazing uses of baby powder. Here we list some unique ones for you.

Bid farewell to stinky shoes
It can be really irritating if your shoes get too stinky too fast. You cannot of course wash it every day. So, what you can do is sprinkle baby powder inside the shoe. Do it in the evening and leave it overnight. The smell will vanish and will remain that way for a very long time.

Use it to clean up after beach visit
While most of you enjoy beaches and playing in water, the post-beach time can be very annoying. It is a hard task to reach the hotel room covered in sand. So, next time you go to beach carry a pocket sized baby powder with you. And apply after you are dry. Immediately the sand will fall off.

Turn it into dry shampoo
Well, it is difficult to wash your hair too often. So, days you don't have time to wash your hair and you find it too oily, just apply some powder to the roots. Rub and brush thoroughly. It will immediately absorb the oil and boost volume of your hair.

Enhance lasting power of lipstick
Apply one coat of lipstick, keep a tissue over your lips and sprinkle some baby powder. Apply second coat of lipstick. Your lipstick will now stay for very long hours.

Untangle knots in jewellery
The worst part of storing jewellery is it gets tangled, especially when it is thin. So, to loosen and untangle knots, just sprinkle some baby powder. It will quickly get untangled.
