Do you mean all-temp snowboard wax or did you go out and buy a block of paraffin wax or something? If you bought all-temp, you'll be fine.

+1 I use universal ALL the time. I don't spend enough time in slush or -30 deg weather to need specialized wax. I've been using the same brick for ages, stuff lasts forever!

How many grams was your brick originally? Great to hear it lasts long though!

Must be fate! lol. I saw this thread, decided i should get the essentials for waxing so i can stop paying a shop 10-20$ to do it for me. I then went to steepandcheap and there was a swix wax kit (iron, a few waxes and a brush) for a decent price so i snagged it! Now i just need some base cleaner and a scraper and i should be good .

I think citric acid mixed in water will do the trick. Just mix it and put it in a spray bottle. I myself am missing a brush. Wonder if a regular brush will do the job.

You don't need any base cleaner, just hot scrape the wax to clean the base, then wax again.
