Title:   Leg Wax
Category:   Non-Food
From:   Living on a Dime
1 c sugar
2 T lemon juice
2 T water
Directions:   Mix ingredients in a saucepan and boil for 8 to 15 minutes, or until mixture reaches 250F (soft ball stage). Then pour it in a container and let it cool down. Keep refrigerated.

To Use: Heat in the microwave just until warm. Be careful not to make it too hot so that you don't burn yourself. Test on your hand first. Lightly powder the area you wish to wax. Pull skin taut and spread wax on using a tongue depressor or popsicle stick. Place a 3x5 piece of cotton cloth* over the area to remove hair. Pull of quickly against the grain of the hair. Cloths may be re-used simply by washing in hot water.

*Old T-shirts or flour sack dish towels torn into strips work well.
