Any suggestions for getting Desitin out of a 22 month old's beautiful head of thick, blonde hair?

Dr. Bronner Magic Castille Soap is very nice for "de-greasing" and is supposed to be all natural. I even use it to brush my teeth! HOWEVER, it's VERY CONCENTRATED and MUST BE DILUTED!!!

It comes in a lot of different formulas (peppermint, aloe, almond, EVEN BABY!). I think this would be good to get the product out.....but it MUST be diluted, and again, ask the pediatrician before you use it on the baby.

So, it's good to get the gunk out, but whether it's good for your baby's skin is up to you and your doctor.

A little bit of Dawn Dish washing liquid will be gentle enough on his/her hair ( I said a little bit!). That will take out vaseline or anything! HTH! Debbie

The other day, Gavin and Daphne got a hold of a tube of diaper cream
and proceeded to make a grand mess with it. (I mean, come on, what 4
and 2 year olds could resist?) So, needless to say, when I found it, I
was not a happy mom. They got it all over one of Genevie's toys, and
all over Daphne, and some on their clothes. Now, anyone who has ever
used diaper cream knows what a nasty thing it is to clean up. So, I put
Gavin to work cleaning up the toy, and Daphne clearly had to go in the
tub! It was all over her hair, so I washed it twice. I thought I had it
out, until it started to dry. Her hair was so oily from all the diaper
cream. I didn't know what to do get it out. So, the next day, I asked
Adam's mom, who suggested using dish soap. The idea being all the
grease fighting power would take the grease out of her hair. I happy to
say that now, after two washings in dish soap, it finally looks like
it's out! Hooray!So, there are lessons to be learned here: 1. Keep
the Desitin up high. 2. Keep plenty of dish soap on hand for when the
kids climb up to your high place and get it down
