What Is Pumice Powder Used For?

    Cement

    • Pumice powder is used as an additive in cement. It makes the concrete lighter than traditional concrete.

    Hygiene Products

    Cleaners

    • Heavy-duty cleaners and polishes also have pumice powder added to them to help remove foreign substances or tarnish.

    Spill Cleanup

    Herbal Remedy

    • Traditional Chinese medicine encourages ingesting small amounts of pumice powder to clear up phlegm from infections, promote urination and treat gallstones among other things, according to the Acupuncture Today website.
