Going to the beach with the family is fun — but it’s also a lot of work. From prepping the snacks to applying sunscreen, it takes a lot to get everyone ready for a day of fun in the sun. But anyone who’s braved the beach with little ones knows the real work comes once the day is done and it’s time to pack up and head home.
That’s where this sand-removing mitt comes in. It will make your beach days better by doing a lot of the tough work for you. All you have to do is place the mitt on your hand, rub it a couple of times to activate the talcum-free powder and use it to wipe down your kids’ feet, legs, bums or wherever else that pesky sand might be hiding!
The product is good for a total of 40 uses, so it’s bound to come in handy for quite a few beach trips. It’s available on Amazon for $13.99:
The item has received mostly five-star reviews on Amazon, with people raving about how quickly this worked and helped their family get into the car, mess-free:
“A nice item to have on our trip,” one satisfied customer wrote. “It eliminates the sand in one swipe! The mitt leaves a light powder behind, but it’s not itchy or annoying. There is no scent and it took [off] wet or dry sand. Great for sandy beach feet and for wiping off before getting in the car.”
The only complaints seem to come from customers whose product ripped immediately upon use. But one reviewer had a great suggestion for sand removal that would be fail-proof:
“What a rip-off! Says it is good for multiple uses — ripped on first use and all the powder dumped out in a pile. Save yourself some money and buy a bottle of baby powder and a microfiber cleaning cloth. THAT worked wonders and cost a fraction.”
A video from the macgyvermedotcom YouTube channel shows how simple the baby powder method can be:
But having a mitt to contain the powder could also come in handy, too, and keep things even more contained with no risk of spills.
No matter how you choose to use powder at the beach this summer, just make sure you’ve got some in your beach bag and stored in your car this summer. Because, apparently, it can be a real life-saver!
