de-waxing a board, base cleaners

now i am really new to snowboarding so please.....be gentle.
now i have heard that a goodand cheap base cleaner is kerosene, so long as you don't decide to smoke when using it. i was wondering if there is any potential damage to the board if left on to long, used to much, ect.

Only problem I could think of is not waxing after and letting it dry out.
