      It doesn't need to be complicated. Melt the wax and pour it over the bikini. Spread it out on a flat surface until the wax hardens. Then cut the fabric into sections of a few square inches each, and they're great for starting campfires.

        Two words: Yee-ouch!

        Honestly, if you want a wax, spring for the salon to do it. It's worth it.

          From what I understand sugaring is less painful. I've done sugaring, haven't tried waxing so I can't tell you.

          You can make your own sugaring stuff for pennies if you plan on doing it yourself.

          The great part is it's not toxic, you can actually eat the stuff.

          INGREDIENTS
          2 cups sugar
          1/4 cup lemon juice
          ¼ cup water

          Equipment: Candy thermometer

          Combine the ingredients in a heavy saucepan, and heat on low using a candy thermometer. Watch the mixture very carefully so that it doesn't boil over. Heat the mixture to 250 F on the candy thermometer; this is the hardball candy stage.

          Remove from the heat and let cool enough to pour into a jar without breaking or melting the jar. (Note that this jar will be reheated in the future. Make sure it is safe for whatever for of reheating you plan to do -- in the microwave, or in a pan of water. Rip clean cotton fabric in 1" inch strips. Make sure the cotton isn't too coarsely woven.

          This next step is very critical: let the mixture cool enough so that it won't burn your skin. Test the mixture on the palm of your hand, knowing that is much tougher than the sensitive skin under your arms.

          Using a dull knife or Popsicle stick, spread the cooled sugar onto your skin. Cover with the cloth strips, let set for a few minutes, and then rip off quickly as you would a bandaid.

          In the future you can reheat the mixture to a warm and not hot temperature (see above), and reuse. Note that reheating will thicken the paste.
