What Baby Powder Can Do To Keep You Safe While Gardening
In the realm of gardening, gloves offer protection against hazards, but they can also lead to issues like contact dermatitis or allergic reactions due to the latex material.
An alternative is to dust your hands or tool handles with baby powder before tasks such as weeding, digging, and pruning to protect your skin from friction injuries like blisters.
Keep the container of the baby powder within reach so you can reapply as needed. You can also use the powder as an ant repellent or as a deodorizer for your gardening shoes.
For those concerned about potential risks with talc in baby powder, there are talc-free options available, as well as powders specially formulated for sensitive skin.
