As Kiwis, we are never really too far from the beach.
However, those of us who frequent the beach regularly already know that there is almost nothing more annoying than trying to get rid of the pesky sand stuck to your feet as you try to leave.
Not only do those stubborn particles feel uncomfortable, they also manage to disperse throughout the car and your house, making clean-up duty all the more infuriating.
So, you will probably appreciate one woman's genius hack on how to easily get the sand off of your feet.
The solution is simple: dust talcum powder on to the skin.
"Mummy hack, always have baby powder in the car for beach trips ... Sprinkle it on the area that has the sand and it comes right off," she says in the video, demonstrating by removing sand from her child’s foot in seconds.
"Look no more sand!" she says. "And it smells good."
One comment says it is because baby powder absorbs the moisture in the sand that makes the particles stick. Yet another says that cornstarch can be used as an alternative for those who do not want to use talcum powder.
The video has racked up more than 261,000 views since it was posted in May, demonstrating just how many people needed this simple hack.
