Hot Scrape Tips?
 
Anyone have any tips for hot scraping? My board needs it bad (Pics below)
Do I just drip and Iron in the wax before it has a chance to cool? Do I let it cool slightly? Do I not iron it in as much?
Any response is helpful.
I have tried to hot scraped one time before but it did not do anything.

what are you expecting it to do? scrape it off while its hot. iron it on as if you were waxing, but immediatly scrape it.
IF you r trying to get rid of the dirt and grime and its not coming out. you can try a base cleaner. ( or goo gone)

I wish these pictures would actually show how dirty it is. I cant get any base cleaner so hot scrape is my only option.

Get some fast orange. It makes a great base cleaner. Or just hot scrape and know that a WHITE base will never be clean if you're riding it.

You need base cleaner.. then a proper wax..
My base only gets like that from riding slushy wet snow.

Why can't you get any base cleaner? Parents won't buy it for you?

Sad truth is yeah (I do not have a job as no where in the area is hiring 15 year olds (Even though next winter I hope to be an instructor at CBK and get decent cash.
Only reason I was able to afford my setups was because of my summer job and selling last year stuff (Got the waxing kit as a stoker from the family. Never used to wax my own boards.
