Use of Calcium thioglycolate
Using a hair removal product involves spreading a thick layer on the skin and leaving it there for between 5 and 15 minutes, the longer time for coarser hair. Warming the area first with a washcloth opens pores and makes the product more effective. You can then use the washcloth to rub off the cream or gel along with the hair.
