Triple Shaving Savings

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Carolyn

Here is a triple saver tip for you to save money on shaving razors!

*  *  *

This can save on 1 - razors for shaving legs, 2 - waxing for face and eyebrows, and 3 - exfoliating for face and legs.

I read in a book that during world war II, razor blades were hard to come by, but ladies being ladies, they were not going to have hairy legs. So, they used fine sandpaper and sanded the hair off of their legs. I tried and it works!

The hardware stores (and auto stores) have several very fine sandpapers that do not scratch the skin. There are sandpapers so fine that they are used to polish car chrome. You can choose a few different ones and find the grit that works bests for you.

I found that this also works on facial hair, lip, chin, eyebrows, etc. Just cut it into squares that fit the job you are doing. Not only does this remove hair it also exfoliates the skin.

Simply rub the area six times one way and then six times the other way. The first time you do it you may have to go over it at little more. This could be done every few days thus avoiding having to wait until the hair gets long enough to wax.

For smoother legs than you have ever had, shave or wax the area and THEN sand it every few days.

In theory, you could live the rest of your life without ever using another razor or getting another waxing!
