    Oooh I hate sand with a passion!!!

    We got rid of our sandpit and got a sand/water table - much less sand on (and in!) the kids!!

    Thanks for the answers. Went and got a banister brush to keep by the sandpit.

    Wasn't sure about the baby powder because of the whole cancer thing, but googled and apparently corn flour does the same trick, so I will try that too!

    Curash Baby Powder (white and blue plastic powder container) is made from cornflour just FYI (and others who may be unaware of 'the cancer thing' with talc) - I have used it from birth with my kids.

    Nicole! I just looked on the website to see how they make talc-free baby powder - and on the website it lists the ingredients as:

    Curash Anti-rash Powder 100g

    • Zinc Oxide
    • Talc
    • Maize Starch
    • Perfume

    I then googled it and apparently a lot of people have been complaining about the dishonest packaging!

    This was there response from Curash to one mum on another forum:

    As “Curash Anti-Rash Baby Powder” is approved through the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) in Australia we are not required to list all ingredients on the packaging, only the “active” ingredient which is the Zinc Oxide. We do not try to hide the fact that Talc is one of the ingredients in this product as with all our TGA approved products we only list the “actives”. The “with Cornstarch” mention on the packaging is not there to mislead our consumers, only to advise them

    Currently use of talc in powders is accepted by the C.T.F.A. (Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association). Use of this ingredient is also regulated and accepted by the Australian T.G.A. (Therapeutic Goods Administration) as well as the F.D.A. (Federal Drug Agency) in the U.S.A.

    Since 1973 talcum powders have been required by law to be asbestos free. Talc is now considered to be safe for use on the external genitals. Further information is available from The Cancer Council at
    www.cancerwa.asn.au/resources.

    Love the idea about the brush
    Might have to implement that when we fill the sandpit
