So we're back. The house is a mess. I was in such a hurry on Friday I didn't get a chance to clean up before we left. I like to come home to a clean house but not only was it messy last night but also HOT since we had turned off the air conditioner. We had to wait a good two hours for the house to get back to normal. At any rate, I wanted to share some Pinterest experiments we tried while at the beach. Today I'll be letting you know if baby powder really does work at getting all that sand off of your feet.
Well....sort of. If you're just coming back from the ocean and your feet are wet and have sand clumped onto them then pouring baby powder doesn't really work that well. Maybe it hastens the drying process but mostly you get a white sloppy mess. It helps if you rub your feet together instead of using your hands. See what I mean?
HOWEVER, if you sit out for about five or ten minutes and try to apply the baby powder on the areas that are semi-dry it works! It's good for when your hands are moist still attract sand.
Although I will say that what you're left with is a lot of white messy powder all over your legs and hands and arms and feet but it feels better than wet sand. What I did was after I had dried for a little I got the sand off with the baby powder then I used a wet wipe and wiped off the baby powder. Of course, the wet wipe made me a little moist but I stayed on the beach blanket until I thoroughly dried and ultimately I got the sand off faster than without the baby powder.
So my recommendation would be to bring it along. It doesn't work miracles but it certainly helps!
Stay tuned for a ribbon sculpture tutorial later today!
