|French term or phrase: paitre|
|I need to know what "paitre poudres" means.|
|English translation:to graze|
`"Paître poudres" could mean simply the ingesting of (generally harmful) dust or powders by grazing animals (see first ref. below). It could also refer to the "Song of Songs" (see second ref.)
We need more context.

|Thanks for the answer. I found out later that my friend actually meant|
"papier" not "paitre" thus the dilemma in finding a translation.
It seems "papier poudre" are a brand of tear-off face cleansing sheets.
ie women use them to clean the pores of their face.
Once again thanks for your assistance and persistance
