TikTok User Discovers An Alternative To Shaving Her Legs — Using Sandpaper Instead

Who has gone to TikTok today and discovered yet another super odd hack? Me, that's who! And of course, I'm here to tell you all about it, ha, ha!

I bet you're really glad you clicked on this article, huh? I can't tell you how many times I've stumbled upon an unusual yet effective tip from a fellow TikToker, and this one is no exception either.

So a lady who goes by the TikTok handle @jules49of posted her very first TikTok video.

And to her surprise, it actually went viral. In it, she shares an unusual tip she's gotten from someone about a new technique to shave your legs.

Here's the story:

Jules goes on to say that she learned this hack from someone else on TikTok. It was actually an accountant whose video she was watching who mentioned the trick first. So, she thought, "Why not?" and tried it herself.

Are you ready?

So get this, ladies, this accountant said that she uses sandpaper to shave her legs instead of a razor. Um, what? That was Jules' reaction, too, when she first heard it. Nonetheless, she decided to try it after all.

And guess what? It actually works.

No kidding! Jules put 600 grit sandpaper square on her leg and rubbed it in a circular motion to shave her legs. She rubbed it in one direction ten times and then again in the other direction.

And the best part is, not only did it work, but her legs came out so smooth.

Wow! Who would have thought that would work? Not me, no sir! I have to admit I'm pretty shocked that it did the job.

My first reaction was: sandpaper? That can't be right?

I also thought it would be too rough on the skin, but apparently, it is not. Maybe it has just enough grit to get rid of the hair but not cause any irritation?

People on TikTok were equally as shocked.

Some even joked that now sandpaper will sell out everywhere, and only the cashier will know exactly why, hee-hee. I don't know, I'm still skeptical of this technique. Like how can it not hurt?

It seems as if some folks have already heard of this trick.

I don't remember these infomercials this lady is talking about though do, you? From the sound of it, I would still be wary of trying this myself, but that's because my skin is very sensitive.

So what do you think?

Would you be willing to try this on your body? For me, the jury is still out on this one. Perhaps if you tell me if you used it, and if it worked well, I might consider trying it.
