Toxic wax pot cleaners and why I won’t use them.

Most Estheticians want their waxing pots to be as clean as possible and it is preferable that we keep them clean in between clients.  Some Estheticians prefer to do one big clean up at the end of the day, I prefer to do it as I go along.  I don’t like my clients walking in the door for a facial or a waxing service and to think that I am a hot, sloppy mess!

In the U.S  you would receive a heavy fine iff State Board came to visit you in the middle of the day and your wax pot looked like the one below.   Plus I think my clients would also question my sanitation practices!

After all they are their to improve their health and well being otherwise they wouldn’t be in a Spa.  They are not there to be inhaling toxic cleaning products that many Estheticians use in their Spa’s.
