The Many Uses of Johnson’s Baby Powder and Cornstarch

Johnson's Baby Powder and Baby Cornstarch PowderBaby powder has got to be one of those products that every family should have in their home. Just last night we used Johnson’s baby powder to treat a grease stain on a pair of pants. The powder soaks the oil up like you wouldn’t believe! It works wonders in removing grease, oil, butter, and other slick stains from many different types of fabric. I’ve found great success with just about every application on these types of stains.

But Johnson’s baby powder also has great results in beauty applications as much as household fixes. I have a bottle of the regular baby powder, which I like to use for the laundry and cleaning tasks, and a bottle of Johnson’s Calming Lavender and Chamomile baby powder, which I love using for beauty purposes.

In case you didn’t know, baby powder works amazingly as a dry shampoo. Just like it sucks the oil and grease out of stains on your clothing, it also soaks up the natural oils released by your hair. So if you’ve slept through your alarm and can’t afford to be late, or if you just need a quick fix to tide you over till your next shower, a few dabs of baby powder in your hair can instantly take away that shiny, greasy look when your hair is due for a wash. Another perfect time to try this is after working out if you won’t make it to your home shower for a little while and you don’t want to wash up at the gym.

Johnson’s Baby Pure Cornstarch Powder with Aloe and Vitamin E offers another wonderful beauty fix – it gently absorbs moisture from the skin, whether from baby’s skin or your own. You can use the powder on baby’s bottom or apply it to your own skin on a hot summer day to prevent excessive perspiration. You might be amazed at the results and how well it works at keeping your skin soft, clean, and dry. (Note – Women have also used baby powder for these purposes but some recent studies suggest cornstarch is a better alternative due to the talc component in baby powder being questionable for links to certain reproductive cancers, etc.)

Finally, another favorite home and beauty use for baby powder products is freshening up your family’s sneakers and cleats. Simply sprinkle a dash of the powder into each shoe after they’ve been worn quite a bit and enjoy the diminishing odor associated with many athletic shoes.

I received Johnson’s baby powder and baby pure cornstarch powder for the purpose of this review. I am also a frequent purchaser of Johnson’s products for skin and face.
