But is double-dipping really that big of a deal? Absolutely. Waxing usually draws some blood, especially when performed on the body. So the stick will likely come into contact with blood, and if double-dipped, potentially infect the entire pot of wax with an infection or a disease the client may be carrying. Then, the next client being waxed could get infected. And, if you’re thinking the wax is hot enough to kill any bacteria, it’s not! Double-dipping is one of the signs to look for at the salon or spa, telling you to find somewhere else to go.
