Default Getting wax off my base?

I waxed with cold temp swix green and now it's hardened like plastic on my base. Long lasting wax wouldn't normally be a bad thing if it wasn't for the 40 degree temps we've been having lately and it's acting like a suction cup on the soft wet snow.

Anyone know of a good wax remover that will handle this stuff...or should I just wax over it with all temp?

So you already hot waxed and scrapped it all off? If so, the only wax that is really left is in the pores of your base so I'm sure just doing another hot wax with different wax would do the trick.

I've heard mixed things about base cleaners (i.e. wax removers).

Throw some cheap bulk wax on there and then hot scrape. It should pull most of that cold wax out of there.

sandpaper and a scotchbrite pad will help get it off, then hot wax it again with appropriate wax.

Nope, I sand mine with 150 and or 220 every time I wax. You ever see a base grind machine? Its a big belt sander.

This stuff is so hard that it seems like sand paper would be the only way to get it off. I've never had wax last this long on my base. I'll the the base cleaner first, but sand paper isn't out of the question.

this is your reasonable suggestion that anyone knowing what they are doing at a shop is going to do/say.

go ahead and use sandpaper...
