How do you remove Desitin from hair? Now, this is a topic I would have preferred to never have the privilege of writing about on this blog. I would have been just fine not having this first hand knowledge and experience. No such luck. I try and share these not-so-fun moments with Instagram, Facebook or Google+. I know some day I will laugh. Who am I kidding, it takes just moments for me to see the humor. My friend said to me, “It cracks me up. My kids never just got into stuff like yours have.” I wasn’t offended, I just pondered the injustice of it all. My kids have ALL been trouble at age 2 & 3 and beyond in the stuff they’ll get into that they are not suppose to touch. If I leave it in the wrong place for the moment, there is a sensor that goes off in my children’s brains. They hone in on it, grab it and do something crazy with it. We have had paint, markers, tape, scissors, nail polish, poop, Desitin (obviously), lotions, make-up, cleaning supplies, food and more. The amount of time I have spent cleaning up stuff around my house is crazy. We could probably make a pretty hilarious sitcom just out of my stories. Yesterday, Corban pooped in the bath. Earlier this week, it was the Desitin. That SAME DAY, I had been cleaning the bathroom and ran upstairs to take care of something for the girls, and Corban had dumped out the Comet and had three spray cleaners shooting all over the bathroom. It’s dangerous. Yes, I know. I should have had it where he couldn’t reach it. Yes, I know. They’re all still alive. Yes, I understand it is a miracle. Those are the big ones, and I’m not counting the spilled food, drink or sand dumped everywhere. I am kidding myself by trying to pretend that it’s probably because they are super creative or geniuses of some sort. The culprit this time was Desitin. OK – It wasn’t really Desitin. It was Corban using Desitin as a shampoo for Kenzie’s head. Therefore, I get the privilege of sharing with you how to remove it in case this ever happens to you, which I am sure it won’t. You’re probably a way more intelligent and responsible mom that I am. Desitin is great for diaper rash, but it isn’t great for hair.
I can tell you what is great for getting out grease. Dawn dish soap. I’m not sure you are aware of the miracle of Dawn dish soap beyond cleaning dishes. Oh, it will get your dishes sparkly clean, but the phrase “works on grease” doesn’t just apply to dishes. We have used Dawn to take away grease stains in our clothes, even set in stains. Now, we discover it works on Desitin in hair. Now, isn’t that just a Dawn ad? This is not a sponsored post.
