 Baby or talcum powder is something that most people only use for babies, or the occasional sweaty feet scenario. Yet this is a big mistake because baby powder has loads of amazing practical applications that you’d love to know about. Here are 10 handy and surprising use for talcum powder: 
1. Boost your eyelashes’ volume

If you use mascara to give your lashes volume, you can actually enhance this process by using talcum powder. After the first coat of mascara has been applied, use a Q-tip to dab a bit of baby powder onto your eyelashes. Then complete the process with an extra layer of mascara. This will give your lashes the long and voluminous look you crave.
2. Untangle your tangled up necklaces

Shampooing daily is not such a good idea for your hair. But you can help decrease your hair without washing it, by using baby powder. Sprinkle some onto your hand and massage it softly into your scalp. Then comb your hair to make sure the powder can’t be seen. Try doing this every other day, instead of washing your hair.
4. Get rid of nasty oil stains on clothes

It’s hard work to get your dog into the bathtub sometimes. So when it’s just one of those days, when it seems impossible, apply some talc to your pet’s coat, giving it a good deep massage into the skin. Just makes sure not to make contact with their eyes or nose. You can also do this between regular washes.

Thus, the process will be less painful for you. Furthermore, using baby powder lin this way will help keep your skin smooth and less irritated, as a result of waxing.
