Unless you rode through a lot of mid, I think a base cleaner is overkill right now. Just wax, scrape, buff and go!
Thanks Wolf!

I was concerned with the corn based alcohol.
Any inputs are appreciated!

I don't know about that. I looked at stuff from Home Depot but ended up getting One Ball Jay's natural citrus cleaner. I don't really use it unless it is really dirty. Just do a hot wax scrap to get a good first cleaning then do a reg wax job.
