how to get sand off from the beach

Now that it’s probably Summer in your neck of the woods, I’m going to share a little how-to with you.


When you go to the beach, pack a small little travel size bottle of baby powder in your beach bag.  After everyone gets all wet and sandy and it’s time to pile into the car to go home, whip out the baby powder.  Sprinkle it all over your sandy bits and rub and the sand will fall right off.

Aren’t you glad you stopped by today?
