TikToker Jules (@jules49of) shared a video of the method in action, writing in the post's caption: "New way to shave my legs!"
Jules explained that she'd seen someone else's video about shaving your legs with sandpaper, and decided to give it a go - saying it not only works, but has also left her skin feeling 'so soft'.
Jules says in the clip: "This is my first TikTok on here, I've been stalking you people for a little bit.
"I was watching one of these girls, she's an 'accountant', I was learning about the business, anyway, watching this girl, she's an accountant and she's talking about shaving her legs with sandpaper.
"She used 600 grit sandpaper on her legs.
"She said, in a circle this way 10 times, in a circle the other way 10 times. I did it.
"My god, my skin is so soft, it's awesome. And it works."
She added: "I have been using a frickin' razor all this time. Just some 600 grit sandpaper. Thank you accountants of TikTok."
Her video has since gone viral, racking up 1.2 million views, 200,000 likes and nearly 3,000 comments.
In a follow-up video, Jules said the response to her first TikTok post had been 'crazy'.
"I thought I'd go ahead and do a part two, so I can answer a couple of questions because I stayed up last night way too late reading some of y'all's comments! I gotta say, y'all are pretty funny.
"One of the questions that really stood out was how long did it last, and it lasted, like, 24 hours later - I had a little bit of stubble on my legs, not bad, and I have to say I also used a lot of lotion after I did that to make sure that my legs were hydrated."
Responding to another point that had been raised, Jules pointed out that she wasn't planning to use the method on more, ahem, intimate areas.
She said: "And then the hootie-ha? Yeah, I don't think I wanna do mine. That hair's pretty coarse, and it might take some aggressive rubbing."
Jules then joked: "If I'm gonna make that area raw, it's not gonna be with sandpaper..."
