At the start of the summer, getting sand between your toes is such a great feeling, isn't it?  But then when the novelty wears off, we sometimes can get annoyed by those zillions of granules that get into our cars, homes, and dare I say it...swimsuits.

I consulted some experts' websites for tips and thought you might be interested in some of them:

  • Beach Chairs are better than towels because you can clean the sand off more easily.
  • Mesh beachbags are good because sand falls through the holes and doesn't collect inside the bag.
  • Baby Powder sprinkled on your feet can help keep sand from getting in your car.
  • Flip Flops are better than closed toe shoes, obviously.  You don't want sand trapped under your feet.
  • Water Jug in Car can come in handy.  Poor some water on your feet right before they go into the vehicle.
  • Sheet lining your trunk can be good if you load your car with beach balls, pails and shovels, etc.  Set all that sandy stuff onto a bedsheet and then just shake out the sheet when you're done.

What's YOUR secret to keeping sand from getting in your home or car?
