Ghost Hunting Baby Powder

Visit the Get Ghost Gear store of over 100 ghost hunting tools!

Baby Powder- Baby Powder or talc powder has over a century's history with ghost hunters including Harry Price. This is one of those love hate pieces of equipment.  One can lay down a thin coating of this powder at their ghost hunting investigation site, around entryways when investigating allegedBaby powder or talc was once used by ghost hunters haunted structures.  Using it in this method allows you to be made aware of anyone or anything that may leave a physical trace entering or leaving the structure.  Spreading around objects (i.e. rocking chairs, children’s toys etc.) that are supposed to be moved by unseen forces can show minimal movements better than other tape methods. 


This is a multifunctional tool for ghost hunters that can be used as a cost efficient motion detector to a very inexpensive wind meter.  For all those reasons and more we love it.


Talc or baby powder was once used by ghost hunters.


While surveying structures for the possibilities of paranormal activities P.I.R.O. (Paranormal Investigating Researchers Organization) recommends a detail environmental study before pursuing deeper and narrower investigations.  One of the environmental surveys they perform would be to seal off the room or structure of the focus of the study.  They would do this to maintain as strict of a scientific sterile setting as possible by eliminating outside uncontrollable forces that may corrupt or change data recorded or observed.  When sealing a room off during a ghost hunt one step is to check for abnormal airflow’s that can be measured documented and corrected if needed.  The tool of choice for this is an air flow meter (see Air Flow Meter).  An air flow meter measures the amount of moving air or wind present.  This baby powder would certainly be hard if not impossible to clean up completely to ensure it does not reappear in your photographic data later that night or even years later.  Using baby powder as a tool for investigating reports of paranormal phenomena may be a thing for the history books.
