So, I'm kind of assuming no direct response means yes, but just to clarify, a brass brush is indeed a brush with brass bristles, correct?
you can use the brass brush to remove dirt from the base and then the base cleaner to dissolve the rest.
But a brass brush is really all that you need to reapply wax after riding. The base cleaner will just be overkill.
If ur planning on stripping your entire base to do a thorough wax job then you can use base cleaner...but be aware that base cleaners dry out your base
Use the hot scrape method 2 or 3 times to be on the safer side.
And yes a brass brush has brass bristles.
