Used to be an acetone base, kinda like nailpolish remover, now a citrus base, like some of the more environmentally friendly degreasers. hope that's of use doc.............
I use an angled riser pad from my longskate as a scraper works a treat and nice to your board because it is quite soft urethane. It also has a variety of sides. I go generally for hot water and old rag to get the residue off.
One side of most wax combs are made to scrap wax off the board. So even have a rounded area for the rails. The wax comes off real well if it warm. After you scrape 95% of it off all you have to do is take one of the legs of your gals worn out hose and fill it with foam dust and tie the ends off. You can use it the strip off the remains bit. No muss, no fuss ~ it works like a dream. Better to make a loaf of bread with the flour or corn meal IMHO. If you have to get it all off a paper towel with the some acetone on it will leave the surface completely wax free but you really don't need any sovents to clean the board up if you just want to clean it up and surf it. I always keep a wax comb and the nylon bag of foamdust in my back pack to clean any excess wax off the bottom of my board before I paddle out. It only takes a few seconds and the bottom is clean as a whistle. Good Surfin', Rich
yeah, wax needs to be warm, sun best plus just sand rubbed in. I love the way aboard left in sun, wax melts an all the dirt in the wax comes to the surface. Crazy pattaerns but time to get rid of it all!
Halcyon nailed it. Step one is scrape with wax comb. Step two is the pickle. The pickle is just nylon hose filled with sanding dust. And you've probably been throwing that sanding dust away!!! Pack it in there, and use it on the board like a big bean bag. http://www.blakestah.com/fins/
Easiest way is to forget to take your stick out of the car after a morning session in July...by 4:00 you just have to scrape off the little wax stalagtites hanging from the bottom of the rail..."Honey, what are all these little grease spots on our new driveway?"
I've found WD40 to work best.. Just final clean with a dish soap to remove the oil. Whamo-squeaky clean.
i like using an off cut of polyurethane foam to get thet last bits off try it!
scrape with an old CD or DVD, by far the easiest.
