Men are often intimidated when they have their legs, face, back or chest waxed, whether it is because of having a “macho” image, or they are worried about the pain. You can see many horror waxing-videos on YouTube, but you need to remember that those people are Not professionals. By going to a professional to get a wax or sugaring, you are in the safe hands of someone with experience. You will save time, energy and emotions. When you do go to a professional, stay relaxed during the procedure. The professional will use the right kind of wax or sugar, and the right thickness for each part of your body.

Escape ladders are portable roll-up or foldable ladders, which can be dropped out the window to evacuate the building during an emergency. They should not be confused with fire escapes, which are fixed stairs that have been erected off the building. Escape ladders work somewhat like boat ladders. They are generally made from aluminum or heavy plastic chain with rigid bars as the rungs of the ladder. Escape ladders come in different lengths, as they are made to accommodate either two- or three-storey homes.  You keep the ladder folded up in a box in your bedroom. When you need to use the ladder, you hook the top portion of it over the window sill and drop the rest out of the window.
