Other than said shit, about the only other things that you would end up getting on your board base are cat / lift grease and tree / pine sap.

Both of these can be easily removed with a dedicated base cleaner used in a spot fashion. I would not suggest Kerosene. Rarely is there need to use a base cleaner on the entire base. Remember, base cleaners strip everything off your base, all wax included.

If you are waxing on a regular basis, then using a base cleaner takes you back to square one. If you feel compelled to clean your base then do a hot scrape and then apply a coat of universal or wax for the temp of the day.
