You can use one from around your house. The only issue is that many of them have holes in base, and it can just make the wax melt all kooky when your putting it on. No major inconveince though. Just make sure you never iron CLOTHES again with the iron you use for waxing...things will get...messy. Also, the iron should be hot enough to make the wax melt really quick, but it should NOT be smoking. If it does, turn the iron now. smoke = buring wax. no smoke = melting wax. you want the latter.

Talking

some waxes need higher temp range, like most flouro waxes
u are actually for the flour waxes just smoke a little bit

I find they look the same, just buy a seperate iron. I used my mom's once and never told her so she ruined a shirt the next time she ironed... kinda irate, ya know, not a pretty sight.

if you want an iron with no holes on the bottom for cheap check ebay! sometimes i come across some really old (almost antique) irons with no holes
my friend has one and it works great!
