The baby powder is used to treat the drive belt...

The drive belt tends to skip a bit when first starting the big, heavy platter. You apply a small amount of the powder to the drive belt to help minimize the belt slipping and making a bit of noise on startup.

I am about to upgrade to the triple drive belt option and maybe that will eliminate the belt slippage on startup issue. Either way the turntable sounds fantastic.
