dear ramya (rya) i have tried using broken pieces of clay pots for removing hair on my legs. it works fine and gives instant results right before our eyes. the best part is it is very cheap and effective. i didnt have to use turmeric. just applied soap and water and rubbed with the clay piece (from the rough side) and many hair strands got removed immediately due to the friction. i want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your excellent idea sharing. thanks again priya.
