Not just for babies. You can use this to keep ants away, sprinkle it on doorways or windows and ants will not cross the line. Sprinkle it on your sheets during the summer to keep you cool and dry. You can also get rid of squeaky floorboards. Sprinkle some baby powder between the boards and sweep in well into the cracks. No more squeaky floor. While shaving your legs with an electric razor, sprinkle them with baby powder to reduce friction burn. And you can rub in a few hand fulls of baby powder on your dog, then give your dog a good brushing. His coat will not only look better, but will also smell better.
