Zardoz no- wax works really well too on slush...but I'm worried that it could bee too toxic. Any info on that?
Well, I'm not a chemist, and my understanding of the distinctions of different PFCs (perfluorinated chemicals) is very limited, but I think Zardoz NOTwax sounds reasonably safe since they actually make that claim. They state that it is perfluoropolyalkylether (PFPAE), which does not appear to be one of the specific dangerous PFCs called out in the Scientific American article. Actually, the stuff sounds interesting, I wasn't aware of it, thanks for sharing. I'll have to do more reading.
