I'm getting laid off from work for a month so I decided to grow a handlebar moustache during my little break. I've been growing it for a couple of weeks now and, being broke, decided to make my own moustache wax to give my whiskers that "je ne sais quoi"... I found directions online for a moustache wax that calls for 4 parts beeswax to 4 parts vaseline. I didn't have any vaseline so I modified it to 4 parts beeswax to 4 parts Murray's pomade, which is basically petroleum jelly with some mineral oil and fragrance. I melted the beeswax in a double boiler, added the pomade and pored the mixture into a glass jar which previously contained pesto. A baby food jar would work equally well. The result is a slightly crumbly mixture which becomes pliable when worked between the thumb and pointer finger then applied to the tips of the moustache. It dries clear, holds it's shape well and rinses out easily with water and it has a pleasant smell! I realize that the majority of people on this site are women and as such will probably find this to be somewhat disgusting, but perhaps there's a guy or two on this forum that has thought to himself "I sure wish I had a bad ass handlebar moustache, but however would I get the ends to stay?"

I think I might have to convince a guy friend to grow a moustache now. Thats pretty awesome.

Cool idea! A friend and I were just talking the other day about how we wished we could grow beards. I have some guy friends that have quite impressive beards and when we talk about them they tend to rub them on your face.

heh heh, that's awesome. My dad has had a handlebar mustache since before I was in the womb. He strongly resembles a Wyatt Earp type character  - so I have a deep appreciation for the almighty mustache (I think I'd faint if he ever shaved - I've honestly NEVER seen him without it... 23 years!!). Thrifty thinkin' with the Murrays!

Hm - My partner may not be able to grow such a handsome moustache - but he sure could use the wax for his hair!!

P.S - you remind me of one of my friends from high school. He's in training to be a Chem Teacher. Cheesy
