Woman quits shaving legs for good after rubbing sandpaper to remove hairs
A woman has made a video claiming that rubbing sandpaper on her legs removes hair better than shaving – and it has divided the internet.
The hack has also been cautioned against in case it could lead to open sores and infections from over-zealous rubbing.
In the clip, uploaded on May 3, TikTok user Jules @jules49of explains she was inspired by watching other women do it on the app and tried it out for herself.
Speaking to the camera, she says: "This is my first TikTok on here, I've been stalking you people for a little bit.
"I was watching one of these girls, she's an accountant, I was learning about the business, anyway, watching this girl and she's talking about shaving her legs with sandpaper.
"She used 600 grit sandpaper on her legs.
"She said, in a circle this way 10 times, in a circle the other way 10 times. I did it.
"My God, my skin is so soft, it's awesome. And it works."
The woman hold the sandpaper up to the camera and adds: "I have been using a frickin' razor all this time.
"Just some 600 grit sandpaper. Thank you accountants of TikTok."

A fan of the method commented: "Ever since I started carpentry and as a person with super sensitive skin, sandpaper has been a blessing.
"Exfoliation AND hair removal? Yes please."
Meanwhile, others urged caution and said there was a risk if you rubbed away healthy skin.
One person commented: "I did this years ago with a product I found in the stores… my legs were in a lot of pain the next day.
