There are many benefits to waxing your legs. Even though the procedure is more painful and time-consuming than shaving or using a depilatory cream, the hair regrowth is lighter and the results last longer. In fact, waxed legs can stay hair free for anywhere from three to six weeks. Whether you use hot or cold wax, the sticky consistency can leave residue behind on your legs after removing the hairs. To clean the wax residue, use products already present in your home.
Wet a washcloth with warm water and squeeze out the excess moisture.
Rub the moist washcloth over the wax to remove the thick liquid. This only works on wax that has not yet hardened.
Place 1 cup of warm water in a bowl and mix 1 teaspoon of hand or liquid dish detergent into the water.
Dip a washcloth in the soap water and wipe it over the solid wax residue on your legs. The warmth of the water softens the wax and the soap makes for a slippery consistency that helps remove the wax.
