yup pretty much. I mean you dont NEED to, but thats my sign that Im over due.

I dont know too much about wax paste, but I would assume that they are just a quick coating and not a good substitue for a good iron wax...

i heard there's a spray-on base cleaner, also it was said you could use hot wax and scrape it before it solidifies to clean it(?)

not sure on the last one.

is that soy wax stuff non-toxic (as opposed to the other stuff)? any other favorite all-temp brands?

and how critical is scraping with a brush afterwards? especially for sh**y (icy) conditions.

base cleaners I hear are not good to use.

Like I said you can how wax scrape to clean, the wax doesnt set and you get all the surface grime off...

I dont know if soy wax is non toxac or if other waxes are toxic. I would assume not but I have never looked into it

I use a brillo pad to smooth the base. It works well and is the most relaxing part of the job. I always do it...
