Base Cleaning Help

Hello bretheren,

I just returned from riding in spring like, slushy conditions over at catamount, and picked up some serious grease on the base of my board from riding rails and what not. I want to clean it off, obviously, but without ripping all the wax off too. What do you all use to clean off your base? Any and all ideas are great, thanks!

Here are some pictures too:

I use swix base cleaner and just rewax. A fresh wax job is so much better than riding a base that has a few days of riding on it.

Hot scrape it and see how it looks. If it's still dirty you'll need a base cleamer.

Hot scrape will make the base look brand new.
