Woman Shares 'Genius' Beach Hack Which Keeps Sand Away

Some people specifically dodge the beach because they 'don't like the sand'. The issues are usually 'I don't like it sticking to my legs' or 'it goes everywhere'. Well, we've got a solution to your problems and here it is:

Rachel Austin, 31, went to the beach in Cordova, North Carolina on 6 June and decided to film herself demonstrating how she uses her 'sand free beach set up'.

First of all Rachel sets up the equipment by placing objects (such as beach bags or coolers) in each corner of a fitted sheet and spreading it out so that the edges of the material make small walls.

She then places a bucket or container filled with ocean water at the side of the fitted sheet set-up with little space between the two.

The idea is that, when you've emerged from the sea and walked over to where you're sunbathing you can wash away all the sand that's everywhere in the container.

Then you just need to pop yourself over to on to the beach towel that's situated on top of the fitted sheet and voila.

Rachel posted the viral video to her TikTok account @rrrachelaustinnn which has been watched over 6.8 million times.

She captioned the clip: "You asked for it, so here is how I put together my sand free beach set up."

Commenting on her post, one person wrote: "This is genius and allows you to eat without sand everywhere and sandy towels are not it."

Another added: "As someone with major sensory issues who doesn't wanna miss out on beach days with friends all summer I appreciate this."

Others weren't too keen on the idea, with one writing: "But why are you going to the beach then? Go to the pool instead."

Defending Rachel, another commented: "As someone who has lived in CA my whole life ignore these critiques. I hate when sand gets all over my towels."

If you find that the sand just isn't budging, it's worth packing a tub of talcum powder which allows the sand to fall right off.
