I usually do mine over a towel or blanket, then shake it out outside. It's not that big a deal.
I dunno, I ride a lot of fake snow here in Onterrible, and it chews through wax like mad, I'm going to try it out and see, I have two boards so I'll scrape one and not the other and see if I find it much different on the same day with same wax. I'll also see how long the unscraped wax stays on, I think it will get chewed away in no time. per the quote below I think that there are others who agree. With four people boarding in my family and only me waxing blowing off the scraping seriuosly changes how long I will spend doing it.
