an abrasive might just work.
Been lurking... I like it here. As a member of the somewhat fairer sex I'll vouch for this one. Its essentially a very fine grit sandpaper, and it does remove hair and dead skin. Of course you are rubbing sandpaper on your legs, even as fine as it is its still not all puppies and kittens. Oh and it's slower than... well it takes a long time to cover both legs. Better than an epilator (similar to an electric shaver, except it *pulls* the hair out), but I still prefer a good razor.
