Come Prepared with a Fitted Sheet
The inspiration for this roundup came from this TikTok beach tip. Next time you’re planning a trip to your favourite sandy spot, pack a fitted sheet and bucket. You can prop up the fitted sheet to protect your belongings from unwanted sand. Why a bucket you ask? Fill it up halfway with water and rinse your feet before getting your tan on. Perfect way to keep the sand where it belongs at the end of your trip!
Bring Baby Powder
Yep I said it. Don’t forget to pack the baby powder on your next beach day. Even though we try our best to avoid it, there’s always leftover sand on your hands and feet from a fun day in the sun. Well not anymore! I was today years old when I found out that rubbing baby powder on you feet will remove that pesky sand.
Bring a Sled
I know what you’re thinking… sleds are for the winter right? Wrong! This useful TikTok beach hack will save you many trips back and forth to the car, lugging bags and chairs to and from your spot on the beach. Just throw everything into the sled, and walk it back in one trip!
Saving Your Hair
For us long-haired people in the world, we all dread the effect the sand and water will have on our luscious locks. Well, TikTok has a hack for that too. All you have to do is throw in a mini bottle of conditioner into your bag, and apply it to the ends of your hair after you’re done in the water. This hack is a must-try for all my curly haired friends out there as well!
Never Lose Your Phone Again
When I was a kid, my dad would lose at least 1 phone every summer in the water. I’ve definitely done it myself a few times over the years. And there’s really nothing worse than watching it sink down into the water as that feeling of dread settles in your stomach. But TikTok said never again! Just put all your valuables into a plastic bag, inflate it with air, and voila! A floating compartment for all your precious cargo.
Beach Packing Hack
Tired of lugging everything you need in multiple bags to the beach? Well this TikTok folding hack will help you save space by keeping everything you need together in one place. Gone are the days of loose shoes and sunglasses in a beach bag! Just fold them into your towel and be on your way.
