Talc powder, which is usually named baby powder, are usually used only when you change a baby’s diaper (hence the name). Some people buy perfumed brands of talk powder to sprinkle on their bodies after taking a bath to spoil themselves a bit. However, did you know that talc powder has many uses other than keeping your baby’s bottom dry?
Here are some innovative uses for talc powder:
1- Dry Shampoo. How do dry shampoos work? They absorb grease and sebum building up on your scalp. Talc powder has the same quality of absorbing oils and excess moisture. Just rub a bit of it on your scalp and then comb it off.
2- Separate and de-knot knotted jewelry. Fine chains and necklaces can get tangled often. However you can loosen their knots instead of breaking your jewelry by sprinkling a little bit of talc powder.
3- Making you sleep better in hot nights. Sweat can make sleeping very difficult in summer time. You feel like you are drowning or covered with an icky layer of humidity. Sprinkle talc powder on the sheets and rub a bit of it on your skin to get rid of sweat.
4- Cleaning oil stains. Oil stains can be difficult to clean whether they were on the floor or on your clothes. However, talc powder with its amazing oil absorbing properties can fix this problem for you. Just sprinkle talc powder on the problematic stain and you will be rid of it within minutes.
5- Wear rubber gloves easily. You can even notice this material when you wear rubber gloves for the first time. And when talc powder is wiped off and rubber gloves become hard to wear again, sprinkle some of it inside the rubber glove.
6- Get rid of the odor of your shoes. Shoes gather moisture from your sweaty toes. When you have moisture and a dark space inside your shoes, then you have bacteria that can make odors. Get rid of the bacteria and the moisture altogether by sprinkling a bit of talc powder inside your shoes.
7- Volumize your eyelashes. If your eyelashes are weak and thin, and you want to give them extra volume and a sexy look, give them a first coat of mascara, then dust them with a talc powder on a cotton swap, and then give them a second coat of mascara. They will look thicker and much more gorgeous.
