    Cornstarch also works WONDERS on nappy rash. When my baby girl ever has a red bum, I replace the cream with cornstarch (Maizena), works better than ANY nappy rash cream you could buy. Instant results by next nappy change.

    2) dryer sheet hair – related, if your hairbrush doesn’t have knobs on the end of the bristles, just poke the smooth bristles through the dryer sheet, & leave it attached to your brush. then you automatically rub it on your hair while brushing.
    3) chalk – use it before washing greasy food stains on clothing

    Nappy refers to the hair on a persons head. Usually African Americans and others have this type of hair. So I dare ya to put a diaper on a persons head that has nappy hair. Nappy refers to tight tiny curls on a persons head. If your from another country nappy may very well mean a diaper just as the word Fag refers to a cigarette in merry old England but here in America it has a much different meaning. You all need to grow up and stop being so ignorant of others cultural differences. Douche bags!!! Gee I wonder what that could mean!?
