TUTORIAL - Homemade Legwax

My first Tutorial... I make this alot, so I'm a bit of a pro. This can take a couple of tries to get the hang of, but it can save you so much money, I think it's worth the time...
1 cup of sugar
Juice of 1 Lemon
about a Tablespoon of water

Put all ingredients in a bowl.
Heat slowly until sugar melts
Bring to the boil and heat for around 8-15 mins.

-You want to heat the sugar slowly so the sugar melts, and is not grainy
-To know when the wax is ready it should look around the colour of oil, a light yellow, when hot, and then when you pour it into the jar/mug it should set to look like a deep orange
- Let the wax cool completely. It should be hard like toffee. Then heat in the microwave for 10-20 seconds, to heat up slightly. It should not be too runny, or it will not work. Heat it just enough until its like a gooey toffee.
- Cut strips of fabric for waxing, which can be washed and re-used.
