Had I known how easy and cheap making my own baby powder was, I would’ve started this a long time ago!
Currently our choices are doom and gloom or pay through the nose for a few ounces of the stuff.
I call shenanigans!
At first I didn’t though. I wondered, if it’s so cheap to make, then why is all the “good stuff” at the store so expensive?
There’s no better way than trying it myself. I found no good reason other than greed to mark organic baby powder as high as it is.
It’s so easy, cheap, and good to DIY that it’s one of my new favorites!
Why use baby powder with no babies in the house?
1.) Big boy stinky shoes (of which range in age from our youngest at 4 to my husband at 34!)
2.) Moisture absorber with my DIY deodorant
3.) Soft skin after shaving
4.) Dry shampoo
5.) Removes sand at the beach
6.) Keeps ants away
7.) Eyelash plumper
8.) Pet shampoo
9.) Removes grease stains
10.) Untangles necklaces
11.) Makes rubber gloves easier to get on/off
12.) Makes pumpkin carving easier (see the punched holes better!)
13.) Knocking hair off the boys’ shoulders after Momma cuts their hair
14.) Keeps sheets cool on hot nights
15.) Keeps playing cards from sticking together
16.) Takes squeaks out of hardwoods
17.) Sets makeup
18.) Keeps rabbits out of the garden
19.) Keeps pests out of garbage (they don’t like the feel of it on their paws)
20.) Protects hands from blisters and gets a better grip on gardening sheers
