As many times as I've been to the beach! I never knew this!! Easily remove sand from your hands by "washing" them with baby powder! This works great for cleaning kids up after playing in the sand box as well!
I am so gonna try this on my tree this year!!! For the Christmas tree: Glue 2 mini mirrors, back to back and insert a silver metallic cord for hanging. Fill the insides of the tree with these after putting on the lights, but before putting on the ornaments. The sparkle will be tripled.
