Gone are the days of frustratingly vacuuming sand out of your car after a long day at the beach with your children. Although you made sure to rinse them off, sand has a way of clinging onto wet (or damp) skin, making it nearly impossible to remove it.
However, a viral parenting hack has taught parents how to clean up sandy feet, not to add more things to do on an already exhausting day.
Using baby powder will help you easily clean up your children’s sandy feet. The powder works by absorbing the excess moisture from the skin, thus making it easier for you to simply brush off the sand from your children. Make sure you put powder on harder-to-reach areas such as in between toes.
Pool Noodles As a Door Stopper
Does your toddler love to slam doors? It seems that as soon as children learn to walk, their newfound freedom to explore their home becomes a race of how hard a door can be slammed.
While this can be exceedingly frustrating as the loud noise can disrupt just about anyone, it can also be dangerous. Children can accidentally slam the door on their fingers, causing pain, redness, and swelling.
A viral parenting hack taking over the internet uses pool noodles as a door stopper. Place the pool noodle around the edge of the door, which will create a barrier and not allow the door to be slammed. This will also prevent your children from putting their fingers between the door and frame.
The best part is you can find pool noodles at just about any store. Make sure to stock up before the summer ends!
