All-Natural Waxing

OK, so I know what you're thinking. "All-Natural" means no hair removal at all. Well, I agree. But if you really want to get rid of the fuzzies and don't want to buy plastic razors or shell out for expensive wax treatments that could contain harsh chemicals, check out this recipe:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice
  • small sauce pan
  • butter knife or popsicle stick
  • several cotton or linen fabric scraps cut into 3x5in. strips (old sheets and dishcloths work great)

If you make too much, you can refrigerate it for later, and the strips can be recycled out of any old fabric. I think it's a great idea. Many people aren't going to go hair free all the way, all the time, and this is a good alternative to shaving.
