    Wax pot cross infection question

    oh wow! what a thread. I use pot and spatula, i use a fresh spatula for each area on a client, i tend to use 2 spatulas for a 1/2 leg etc, will not re-dip a spatula for underarm or bikini but generally will only use 1 or two for each side as don't offer intimate waxing. I'm not going to say...

    Thanks for your replies guys, i thought it all sounded a bit dodgy. Without slating the therapist to this client i think i will say something along the lines of ...'This treatment went through a popular stage but wasn't really seen to have the best results and so now is not widely used at all...

    Leaflet drop in Bournemouth

    Just to add tudor delivered 4400 of my leaflets august 2007 and i haven't had to do much since. I've tried all sorts of magazine ads and yellow pages etc, but the leaflets bought in lots of clients, very reasonable price and so much easier than doing it yourself!!! good luck x:)
