I use a carbon graphite grill brush. It is significantly stiffer, but it works very well for me.

Stainless steel might work too, but I found it too soft and it bent out of shape very easily.

you could probably order one from home depot or something. i've also heard that kerosene will take some wax off.

Kerosene = bad
Steel = hard

Brass/Copper = soft

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

I ended up just using a very stiff nylon brush and ordered a brass one online. I just wanted to make sure that a steel brush would have been a bad choice. Got the wax job done and now I can't wait for tomrrow morning. 4 inches last night and another 4 predicted for tonight. First and fresh tracks at Greek here I come!
