Mum Shares Beach Hack For Removing Stubborn Sand From Your Skin

Mum Shares Beach Hack For Removing Stubborn Sand From Your Skin

A mum has shared her genius life hack for getting sand off yourself after you've been to the beach.

It's a tale as old as time - you head off for a nice day out at the beach, then after you get back you have to take the car to the cleaners or, heaven forfend, clean it yourself.

What's more, everyone has to sit in the car on the way home with sand all over them.

Well, one mother has taken to TikTok to share her secret, and it's a hell of a lot simpler than you might think.

All you've got to do is remember to bring a bottle of talcum powder with you each time.

Don't believe us? Watch the video - the sand just falls right off her kid's feet as she pours it on.

Let's not pretend to understand the science behind all of this, the important thing is that it works, and nobody has to deal with a massively sandy car - even worse if it's a rental - or sitting on a long journey with sand in your shorts.

Especially on days like today, this technique could be a godsend.

TikTok 'modern mamma' Steph Scheff - who also has an incredible rhyming name - shared the trick with her followers in a video captioned: "How to easily remove stubborn sand from skin."

Comments have also flooded in to thank her for revealing this little known hack.

One person wrote: "That's actually pretty smart."

Another commented: "Saving this for the future."

A third - who is obviously an amateur scientist - added: "It works because baby powder absorbs the moisture in the sand that makes it stick."

Whatever the reason, it's certainly going to make journeys back from the beach - for adults and kids - a lot more comfortable.
