waxing

hey guys...i was told to wax my board and scrape it off to get the dirt and crap off from the spring. i was just wondering...do i have to use snowboarding wax to do that...or can i just use like...a candle or seomthing since i'll end up putting an actual coat of snowboarding wax on later on for the summer?

don't use a candle. If you want to wipe out dirt scrape the old wax off first and then use a citrus cleaner. then re-wax using an actual snow sliding wax as it contains the proper chemicals for sliding.

Base Cleaner will work, but a lot of people recommend ironing on your wax and scraping it off right away while it's still warm. The pores of your base will still be opened from the heat and you'll be able to do a real deep clean. I'd then iron on a coat of warm temp wax(don't scrape), bag it up, and store until next season.
