You can have too much of a good thing when it comes to glitter. And no one knows that better than dad, Josh Pierce. Pierce discovered just how frustrating glitter can be when his daughter, Norah, unleashed a bottle of the sparkly stuff on their bathroom ... and herself. Hey, there's a reason people send envelopes filled with glitter bombs to their enemies in the mail.
"I've got beautiful glitter on," she told her dad in a video he filmed of the explosion. However, he and his wife point out to their daughter that she was specifically told not to play with the glitter. "I just wanted to put glitter on my face!" was her response — and that, she did. It also ended up all.over. the. floor.

Yikes. We all know glitter is the absolute worst to clean, and we feel for Pierce and his wife. That's why we found out how to make the clean-up process a little easier for them (and parents everywhere). When it comes to cleaning up that messy floor, Carolyn Forte, director of the Cleaning Lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute has a trick: "The best way to clean up glitter from household surfaces is with a sticky lint roller — the bigger the better!"
As for Norah's face, we hope her parents washed the glitter off gently with soap, water and a wash cloth. After all, glitter is plastic and can be dangerous when it comes into contact with eyes. Just ask Erica Diaz, whose cornea was cut from a piece of this sparkly stuff after doing crafts with her daughter. For that reason, Diaz urges parents and their children to wear eye protection while dealing with this craft supplies.
