To make your own hair removal wax (like Nads) you need:
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
In a microwavable bowl, put all of the ingredients on high for 3-4 minutes. You can put it on the stove too, but there's a chance of burning it.
When it cools down, use it like hot (or cold) wax! You will find all the hair
you want to remove comes off.

How to prepare recipe and directions for waxing
Squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon into a bowl, add 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup
honey. Mix well then microwave for 3 minutes.
DO NOT place directly on skin, wait until you are able to touch with your
fingers without burning them.
Apply with a flat surfaced item like a tongue depressor or Popsicle stick. When
applying, apply in a thin layer about 6 inches long and 2 inches wide following
the growth of your hair (downwards).
Apply a strip of cotton material leaving about 1 inch at the bottom so that you
have something to grab onto. Cotton strip means something like old jeans. I cut
and use old jeans and find that is the best. Cut the legs off of jeans, then cut
that into strips of about 8 inches long and 4 inches wide. The inside part of
the jeans seems to absorb the wax better, so place on your waxed area with
inside of jean material on that. Smooth or rub the material onto the wax firmly
so there is good contact. Pinch or grab hold of bottom of cloth and pull/rip
upwards and quickly in an upwards motion.
Always apply wax in the direction of the hair growth, and always remove strip in
the opposite direction and at a 45 degree angle.

Then what? leave it on? Wash it off? what do I use to rip it off? fabric? tissue? WHAT? please finish the recipe. Thanks.
plus anything nuked on high for 3 minutes will be scalding. Are you sure this is correct????? how do we prevent getting burned?? MORE INFO PLEASE!
TipKing Says: The instructions do say that that it needs to ba allowed to cool. Then it says that you can use it like hot or cold wax. The recipe is suggesting you use it then like regular hot or cold wax.
for those who can't read between the lines!

apply thinly on the area you wish to remove hair from (the sugar mix)once it has cooled (allowing you to touch it without burning your fingers!). Then use cotton strips, as in waxing, apply them to the section of skin with the paste, pat down,and yank off. Warm water will remove any residue past left on the skin.

What do I use to rip it off?
TipKing says: Someone was talking about cotton strips. I have not tried the tip so I do not know!

Messy to apply. Time consuming to cut all the strips of cotton fabric. Made a big, gooey mess and it didnt work AT ALL.

to my surprise it works! i used a slightly differnt recipe though,
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup creamed honey (not the liquid kind)
1 tbl spoon of lemon juice ( i didnt have a lemon so i just guessed the amount of juice would be in 1/2 a lemon)
a little bit of molasses
sprinkle some corn starch on area you are waxing so it holds better!
I tried cooking it on the stove but it wouldnt get hot enough to blend really well so i microwaved until bubbly.
i used it when it was still a bit hot to apply, but o well... and then pressed on the cotton strips ( an old sock) let it cool down really well, it works, i just pulled it off now and viola, hair is out!

TipKing says: You should not be trying to remove hair from someone so young.
