I have a personal question...Do you sprinkle powder in your panties before putting them on?

My friend came in my bedroom as I was getting dressed and started laughing. She says only little girls so that. But I've always done it. My 60-something year old mom does too. Do you?

  • No, never done it. Never have done it for my daughter either. Her urologist said it would cause her more UTI.

  • No, but I will put deodorant on the inside of my legs if it is hot out. They don't stick together when you sweat LOL...

  • nope.

    @Midnightmoma- I always did that when running! It prevents chafing. Also do so when riding horses for long perios, or before a rodeo event! lol Thought I was the only one.

  • It's best not to. Some studies suggest that using talc on your underwear or pads puts you at a higher risk for ovarian cancer. Other studies have failed to show any connection, but it is something to consider.

    At any rate, there's no need to use baby powder.
