10 Awesome Ways To Use Baby Powder You Never Knew

If you look in the medicine cabinet or perhaps somewhere underneath the bathroom sink, you’re going to find a bottle of unused baby powder. Many people consider this powder to be used for keeping sweat to a minimum or perhaps to use on babies when changing their nappy.

Although it certainly can be used for that purpose, there are also many interesting ways to use it that you may never have considered before. Just make sure that you use a baby powder with cornstarch and not with talc. Using talc can really harm your health, as it is a known carcinogen.
