Perfect soft cotton
I often find the fabric or cardboard that comes with boxed waxes are of horrible quality or don't pick up all the wax and I'm left ripping at the same patch multiple times.
After having a collection of wax tub that I had lost the "reusable" strips or the strip was useless at picking up wax I finally stubbles across these.. Bargin! Now I can make use of all those half tubs.
So soft and affordable, just rinse with soapy water or let soak and rinse.
Rub into slightly tacky wax and let sit a further 15-20 sec while patting or rubbing in, then RIP in the opposite direction of hair growth.

much better than the papery strips that come with their wax pots
I use the Nair Easiwax in the 375g pot on a regular basis, not just for me but for others in the household (men and women too!). It pays to buy a pack of these before you start on your waxing adventure because the strips you get in the boxes of pot wax are pretty ordinary and difficult to use. They are very stiff and papery, like recycled paper and you only get 5. The thickness of them makes them a little difficult to use especially when getting into difficult areas that have curves (like underarms). These 22 pack of cotton strips are much better, feel nicer on the skin and easily mould to your curves. They are washable. I wouldn't recommend washing machine, I pop them in the basin and cover with warm water, leave for 15 mins, come back and they only need a brief rinse before they are clean and ready to use again after a quick iron - yes I am that fussy!
If you treat them roughly they fray at the edges over time, but if you are gentle with them they last and last. If they were hemmed they would last indefinitely, but that really is me being fussy.
treat them gently if you want them re-usable over and over
