While all moms want to encourage their babies to express their creativity, they also worry that babies will become all too fond of taking a little extra artistic license and drawing on them. If you’ve grown tired of being a human canvas for your baby simply because it takes hours to get marker off your skin, there’s actually a very simple way to remove marker from your skin. The answer lies in your baby’s diaper bag. Although you may innocently have assumed that baby wash can only be used to keep your baby clean and smelling fresh, the truth is that it works great to remove marker. Now you won’t have to worry about having an embarrassing mommy moment if your baby draws on you with marker and you have to dash out of the house quickly!
Removing Your Child’s Work of Art
Although you may be proud of the drawings that baby has managed to place all over your skin, you’re not going to want to keep these markings on your skin for long, especially if you have a social outing planned. You’ll have enough to worry about with stinky diapers and baby temper tantrums that you won’t want to deal with the embarrassment that comes from dark marker on your face. Fortunately, all you need to do to get rid of marker stains is run to the bathroom or kitchen, squeeze out a small portion of baby wash to mix with water, and get to scrubbing. If you have more time before you have to leave, you can easily do this in the shower or bath, but it works just as well for busy moms who only have time to wash at the sink. You’ll want to take care if you’re removing marker from your face around your eyes, but using a gentle, tear-free baby wash from Baby Magic should ensure that you don’t irritate your eyes.
Gentle for Baby
Thankfully, you can also use baby wash to get rid of marker stains on your baby’s skin as well. If your little one has decided that he or she wants to be more like one of the four-legged friends around your house and drawn on whiskers, you don’t have to panic and wonder how you’re going to remove the marker before school or the next social outing. Never fear, your baby’s wash will do the trick for him as her as well, and you won’t have to worry about spending hours at the sink trying to get your little one clean. Just make sure that you are a lot gentler with your baby than you might be with your old skin, as baby’s get easily get irritated and fussy when it comes to scrubbing. To make sure that you can always easily remove marker from baby or from yourself, make a point to buy washable markers. They’re just as colorful and fun, and they’re half the mess for you to clean up!
