When you visit Myrtle Beach, chances are you plan on spending time at the beach. Water, sand and sun are what the beach is all about, but as fun as sand can be, it can also be a nuisance. It often wants to stick to you and everything around you and it can be hard to rinse or brush it off when you are ready to leave the beach and move on to other activities. These tips can help you keep the sand where it belongs on your next trip to North Myrtle Beach.
Take a small bottle of baby power to the beach and whenever you need to wipe the sand off your body, sprinkle some baby shower on yourself. The baby powder stops the sand from sticking to your skin and allows it to be brushed off easier. Just toss a travel-sized bottle of baby powder in your beach bag and you are ready to go.
Tired of sand being kicked and blown all over your towels, beach bag and belongings? Grab and old fitted sheet from home and pull up each corner. Use heavy objects such as a cooler, beach bag, or extra towels to hold up each corner. This creates a barrier that helps protect everything inside and on the sheet from the sand.
If your kids have sand toys or you have a lot of items at the beach, chances are they are going to get sand on them. Carry and store sand-covered items in a mesh bag. As the items dry the sand will fall off and through the mesh. This will help reduce the amount of sand you bring from the beach and keep your sand toys and items cleaner.
What’s more frustrating than taking a drink of your ice cold drink only to get a mouthful of gritty sand? Sand always seems to find its way into your pop cans or water bottles but there is an easy solution. Instead of dropping or sitting your drinks in the sand or on a towel, make or buy a few tall cup holder that will lift your drinks above the ground and reduce the amount of sand that gets into them.
Flannel and Corn Starch
This combination may sound strange, but it’s great at getting sand off your body. When you try to wipe sand off with your hands it either gets stuck on your hands or just moves to other parts of your body. Try cutting out a pocket from an old flannel shirt or making a pouch out of flannel fabric and filling it with corn starch. Use the filled pocket or pouch to brush the sand off your body and it will come off much easier.
