Vaseline, You are a Slippery Vixen.

This is exactly what Lydia looks like.
You guys know by now that we are the worst parents ever and have no idea what we're doing?  Right? Good. We're all on the same page.

Last week we ran a post about what happens when kids draw on themselves with a sharpie and then you have a Scooby Doo moment where you're all "Rut Roh!"  So then our friend told us how to take care of the problem and it was awesome.

That encouraged a lovely lady named Paige to email us the following:

Hi ladies,



I just read your latest blog about how useful sunscreen can be for removing Sharpie and thought I'd share another useful tip. Cornstarch is the best and pretty much only way to remove Vaseline from hair. As an adult you might realize that hair is not the best place for vaseline. But it seems at the age of 2 one has not yet acquired that knowledge. Please find below the instructions for removing vaseline from hair and enjoy the before and after shots.


Step 1: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 2: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 3: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 4: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 5: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 6: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 7: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 8: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 9: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 10: Rinse with shampoo and water

[Editor's note: At this point, we suggest pausing and pouring yourself a size XL glass of wine. - Kate & Lydia]

Step 11: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 12: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 13: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 14: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 15: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 16: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 17: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 18: Rinse with shampoo and water
Step 19: Cake cornstarch in hair
Step 20: Rinse with shampoo and water


At this point its best to just stop. After about a week the rest will work its way out. Hope this helps anyone who ever finds themselves in my situation!

Thank you, Paige! You are awesome.  I wonder of this also works for Desitin.  If anyone else has any helpful ideas for avoiding child-related disasters, please remember that we are idiots and we could use all the help we can get.

xo, Kate & Lydia
