Wipe off the mixture using a towel soaked in warm water. Repeat this process for a week till the hair follicles are loosened.

•  Homemade Sugar Wax:

This is a more permanent homemade remedy. This can be done using ingredients in your kitchen. To make the sugar wax, put sugar in a pan and add water to it. Heat the mixture till the sugar dissolves and forms a brown caramel colour. Keep stirring the mixture while adding a bit of lemon juice to it.
