Make your own Sugar Wax

I love this stuff, I don’t use it as often as I should.  It is so good to know how to make so if you don’t have a razor you won’t have to be hairy ape. Plus it is so much cheaper then buying the wax or for that matter razors.
This works best on hair that is 1/8” to ¼” inch long. Your skin must be dry to do this you can use a thin layer of baby powder or cornstarch if it isn't real dry like if  just got out of the shower.
Here is how to make it.
In a pan mix
2 cups of sugar
¼ cup water
¼ cup lemon juice

Put over a med heat Stirring occasionally till you bring it to a slow boil then turn the heat down to low and simmer until you get to 250 degrees about 25 minutes.

It will change to a honey color

Pour into a glass container let cool for about 30 minutes.

Have several strips of cloth about 2 to 3 inches wide and about 6 to 7 inches long. I just use a old sheet cut into strips.

I use a large popsicle stick to spread.

Spread a thin layer
then use a strip of fabric and pat it down on top of the layer ( I used my arm to show, it was easier to show then my leg ).
After you have the strip on quickly pull it off.

It is kind of hard to see but it does pull the hair off.
Clean up is easy just use soap and water.
you can wash your strips to reuse.
It is a lot easier if you have some one who can help with the back of your legs
