If you’ve had kids, you probably have a container of baby powder in your cupboards somewhere. However, you don’t need a baby to go out and buy some of this magical powder. In fact, this very simple product can be used in many different ways around your house. Here is proof!

10. Dry shampoo

A mix of 1/4 cup of baby powder and 1/4 cup baking soda can help camouflage oily hair. Massage this DIY dry shampoo in your hair and leave it in your hair for a few minutes before brushing out your hair to remove the excess powder.

9. Deodorant

Replace your normal deodorant with baby powder. POPSUGAR says that the powder absorbs sweat and prevents you from having smelly armpits. This product is also useful to eliminate any unwanted odours coming from your shoes. Fill your shoes with baby powder and leave the product inside all night. Empty them in the morning and that’s it!

8. Repel mosquitoes

It is suggested to put baby powder around windows and doors to create a barrier so ants don’t come into your home.
