Default Base cleaning help

Hey guys,
I'm about to attempt my first wax job on my new NS EVO(which is amazing) and I heard any citrus based cleaner will work on cleaning the base of your board before waxing. I picked up a Natural degreaser today and was wondering if it will be ok for cleaning. the ingredients are:Filtered water, Plant based cleaning agents, corn based alcohol, citric acid, propylene glycol, ifra citrus scent, natural orange colorant.
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.

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!
