Heating Sugaring Products with a Microwave

Q: Today I received my order, a jar of medium firm sugarwax. Thank you! Do you also have instructions on how to warm the wax? Can i put it in the microwave or in a bowl of hot water?
Kind regards, claudia

A: Hi Claudia,
Great question. Either way works. If using the microwave start with 10 seconds at a time as to not overheat. It might take up to 30 seconds but typically more than that will make the sugar too hot and runny. If you use hot water, it does not need to be boiling. Use about 95-110 degrees. Boiling could make it too hot and burn your hand when you go to grab it out. Once the sugar is heated, it holds it heat for a long time, so you only need to re-heat it about every 30 minutes or so. Keep in mind that some climates that have more humidity don’t need to heat the sugar at all. — Grace
