What are some other uses for baby products?
By Marni from New York, NY
My daughter uses baby oil, or baby oil gel on a cotton swab to remove mascara and moisten her skin right after a shower.
The skin lotion for babies is nice for anyone. For years I used
baby powder as a light dusting instead of make up powder to set my foundation. It's translucent and was invisible. Diaper ointment is good for any 'owie' to help heal burns, scrapes. Diaper wipes are a quick face wipe when running out the door for quick errands. Q tips are Qtips for any purpose. Leftover and unused disposable diapers after baby is toilet trained would be good for absorbing spills . I'm not sure but I'll bet if you trimmed off the waistline of a diaper, sat it in a plant pot and potted a plant in such a way you didn't see the diaper it would help hold in moisture and keep the plant hydrated more evenly.
Baby shampoo is hypoallergenic and can be used as a body wash from head to toe for fair complexion and light hair people who have skin reactions using soaps and other shampoos. After visiting the doctor's office several times suffering from soaps and dish detergent reactions, the doctor suggested that baby shampoo be used and nothing more. No further flair ups have occurred following doctor's orders.
Hi From the republic of Ireland, Baby talcum powder is good lightly sprinkled on postage stamps when storing them for later use, as it prevents them sticking together, Baby oil is good for removing labels from jars etc. just rub it on to the labels and leave overnight, they usually slide off then!
Baby oil also helps to Lubricate oil-stones when sharpening edged tools, and a wipe will prevent rust too.
