How to Remove Honey Wax From a Microwave

Home hair removal kits are purchased at most department or beauty stores for a relatively low price. To use the honey wax kits, you place the wax into the microwave to melt it and then apply it to your skin. Once the honey wax is on your skin, you place paper strips onto the wax and smooth them down. Grab the edge of the paper and--in one quick motion--rip the paper, wax and hair from your skin. The do-it-yourself honey wax kits can save you hundreds of dollars you might spend on salons. Unfortunately, home hair kits can be messy, and it is common to accidentally spill some of the wax while heating it.

Hair Dryer

Waxing lasts longer than shaving.
  1. Remove as much of the wax as possible with a spoon.

  2. Plug your hair dryer in and power it on.

  3. Move the hair dryer in a slow back and forth motion over the honey wax until the wax has softened.

  4. Scrape the wax with a paint scraper or butter knife. Wipe the wax from the scraper or butter knife with a paper towel.

  5. Continue in this manner until all wax as been removed.

  6. Wipe the inside of the microwave with a cloth saturated in a mixture of equal parts vinegar and water.

  7. Rinse the inside of the microwave with a damp cloth.

Dryer Sheets

  1. Rub the honey wax with a used dryer sheet in a circular motion.

  2. Flip the dryer sheet over and rub the wax using the other side.

  3. Continue in this manner until all the wax is removed.

  4. Wipe the inside of the microwave with a damp soapy cloth.
