A bottle of baby powder costs hardly a few rupees at the general stores and that makes it so much budget friendly an investment. However, did you know there are a hundred other uses of baby powder other than just freshening up your baby’s bummies? Here are 6 amazing alternative uses of baby powder that will help you save time and money.

Seal your lipstick with a little bit of baby powder dusted between two coats. It makes the colour stay longer and also plumps your lips up for that perfect pout.
Degrease a poker night:
If you had a poker night with oily snacks, chances are your cards are greased with the oil. Just pop the cards with 1-2 tablespoons of baby powder in a re-sealable bag and give it a good shake. The baby powder will soak up the excess grease on the cards.
Refresh your sweaty sheets:
With the erratic weather upon us, most of us sweat in the humid nights. You may be inclined to wash your sheets frequently but take this tip and save all the bother. Just sprinkle some baby powder on your sheets and pillowcases and it will soak up all the moisture and take care of the smell of sweat as well.
