OK so I learnt the hard way not to use Loctite on your bindings, especially if they're plastic I need to use something because everything comes loose even if I tighten it the day I'm boarding and I don't want to have to keep tightening while on the mountain. People have suggested so far: toothpaste (apparently Union bindings approve this, or someone is making fun of me), teflon plumbers tape. Anything else work?

I've heard people say to use Rain-X on the topsheet to make snow and water fall off it easier, is Rain-X safe to use?

Also heard of putting Vaseline (petroleum jelly) in the binding holes you're not using to prevent rust? Is this safe also?

Cleaning the base, not safe to use Kerosene, check. Is Prepsol (Liquid hydrocarbons) safe to use? If not what type of citrus cleaning agent is?

I've heard toothpaste, one of the weaker loctite's, tape, basically everything you've said, i've heard, although I've never had the need to use any of it.

Forget the rain-x, dunno about prepsol, and you can use pretty much any orange/citrus based cleaner

blue loctite, no worries. I use automotive wax on the topsheet tip and tail only not between the binders, rain x would work if its not a matt finish. Use any solvent base cleaner sparingly and make sure you let it evaporate completly before applying wax.

so what happens if you just left the wax on the board like after riding once, then put it away for the summer? I didn't do any special prep when I put our boards out in the garage.

Does anyone have any good methods for testing how good of a wax-job you've done? Pushing a towel across the base makes the towel fly right off.. but still, not sure how accurate that is.
