When leaving the beach, it's great to have a disposable duster in your vehicle or beach bag. Before entering your vehicle, have the handle and extra disposable duster heads handy to use on your feet for fast and easy removal of sand. Just gently brush off the sand and you are ready to go. No need to even touch any more sand! No messy baby powder needed.
One disposable head lasts through quite a few cleanings. It works every time and you can leave the sand on the beach where it belongs. Also, keep one handy on your car door for dusting the inside of your vehicle. Works especially well if you have a dark colored dash, door handles and control panels. Happy dusting!
With the summer coming I thought this would be good to share, to remove any dry or wet sand, put baby powder on sandy feet or legs and wipe with towel. Your feet and legs will come clean and you'll smell nice and fresh.

Another way to get sand off is to leave a liter bottle of water in the car and pour it over your feet and then wiping it dry before getting into the car.
Use baby powder (cheapest works the same) for sandy hands and especially sandy feet at the beach. You know how hard it is to get all the sand free from your toes and feet, legs, your hands. It just seems to cling there, even though you have rinsed in the water and towel dried them. And your feet still feel gritty in your sandals or sneakers. Well, after you towel dry really well, sprinkle baby powder on them and rub it in. It immediately removes all excess sand from your body.
This is especially well when trying to get your children ready to pack up at the beach and go home. And most children, like adults, hate that sand feeling in their sneakers. The baby powder really works. You really only use a sprinkle. It helps with them tracking sand into the house after a day at the beach. Baby powder is a must have in my beach bag. Try it, you will never go to the beach without it again.
An Oncologist who spoke at our women's group told us that talcum powder ingredients are found in cancer tumors during autopsy, so it obviously contains carcinogens. Since then, I am very careful to hold my breath when I use it, and I use it very sparingly. Just a word to the wise. After all, it is made of chemicals. Research what is in these products before you let your children or yourself casually use them. Good luck.
Warmer weather is just around the corner or already arrived. Here are some tips for your trip to the beach.

Instead of taking the kids to the funfair on holiday, spend time on the beach with them. A little tent is ideal for putting up and stowing all kinds of things. A donkey ride is just as much fun as many of the kids rides - and a lot cheaper and greener too.
