It’s true. Baby powder might seem silly to use in this context, but ants, beetles, and rabbits cannot stand it. Since rabbits don’t like the taste of baby powder, you can sprinkle some by the garden to keep them at bay. Ants are a bit more adventurous. Place some baby powder around the garden and the home’s foundation to keep them out. And beetles are deterred when the powder is sprinkled on the plant leaves directly.

Indoor bulbs can be treated with baby powder to prevent root rot as well. Place the bulbs in a Ziploc bag with some powder and shake it up for the best results. Baby powder is great for eliminating shoe-related odors, too. Those who are looking to eliminate the friction on their hands when using tools are also going to benefit immensely from the use of baby powder.

Please don’t hoard all of these amazing tips for yourself. Be sure to share them with your friends and loved ones as soon as possible. The gardeners in your life are sure to appreciate this one. We love this hack because it keeps the ants out of our kitchen, that is for sure. Let us know more about how well this hack works for you!
