If it goes on your board, it's good for your board.

UNtil you have removed all the surface wax... remember, we are tryig to remove all surface wax.. 5-10 minutes max. Don't over apply the wax because you will just end up scraping it all off and it will end up in the trash. I rub on first, and then drip on with the iron for complete coverage...DON'T OVERAPPLY, but never put a hot iron on a base w/o wax.

brush and polish with a scoth brite when done scraping; doing this exposes the "structure" of the base making sliding easier with less suction.. BRUSHING imo is the most important step that most forget.

When you wax and scrape, brush, and polish you temporaliy bury the Structure, by brushing and then polishing you reveal the structure once more.

I recommend an all temp wax combined with a cold wax combo, and maybe a fluorocarbon overlay depending upon ambient temp. snow temp and humidity..

lemme know. cheers.

don't stress about putting too much the first time. you're probably going to put on too much anyway but you'll get better at gauging how much to use the more you do it.

After you iron your wax into your board, let it sit the normal time you would before you start to scrap (20-30min, whatever you do). Then right before you scrap, run your iron over the whole board one more time to heat the wax back up. The first iron/cooling session should have allowed the base to soak up all the wax it was going to, and scrapping warm waxing is 100x easier than hard cool wax. Plus i've heard warm scrapping helps clean the base, but I don't know about that
So I realize that this is a pretty old post, but just wanted to say that it sounds like you're hot waxing your board, which is actually a method to REMOVE wax (as opposed to a base cleaner). Scrape the wax cold.
