BABY POWDER....

lol Now that I'm back at work I have to take showers at night so I have time to feed dd in the morning and drop her off. I have VERY oily hair, so by the end of the day I look like I haven't showered in two days. SO, I have stashed a bottle of baby powder in my work bathroom. When it starts too look greasy, I run in there and pour powder on my scalp, then run a brush through it. Looks like I just styled it!

I also use the no tears de-tangler on my hair...works wonders and doesn't make my hair extra oily...lol

What other uses have you found for baby products?

Wow now I'll have to try out baby powder on my hair. I use it on my thighs to prevent chaffing. All lotions can be used to remove eye makeup, a friend told me that when she saw I had expensive makeup remover.

Crazy story... my husband works on heavy machinery. To reduce static electricity in the equipment, they put baby powder in it. They purchase it buy the ton!! Here's a picture of one of the poor guys after having to treat the press with baby powder! It makes a HUGE mess! It covers the shop and takes days to clean!! If you look closely you can see it all over the floor. This guy, who isn't my husband by the way, does not have white hair, that is all of the baby powder!!!

Baby oil works great for tanning! And not in the beds, just laying outside

It gets rid of ants.  You need to buy the one that does not have corn starch in it.  the ingredient starts with a T.

Baby shampoo kills fleas. I have used it on my cats for years instead of animal flea shampoo

Awesome ladies!   I will have to try some of this stuff :) 

I'm pretty sure it works on dark hair. Just make sure you brush it in good.  I would try a little first to make sure.  I have blonde hair, and if I don't get it all brushed in it makes my hair look white.

That picture is CRAZY!!!  They must smell okay though.  LOL
