Wax removal for base repairs?

What is the best way to clean dirt and wax off of the base of skis to wield Ptex to them? I will be using a Skimender 360 to wield the bases with.

I use Tognar Ski & Snowboard Base Cleaner.  No patch has ever come out.  Get it at

If you don't feel like ordering online, you can go to the hardware store and grab some Orange Clean.


The best way to ensure the ptex stays is to clean it out well especially making sure there is no debris in the gash; if its oddly shaped, use a razor to make it uniform; bevel the edges of the gash at a 45* angle; score the surface within the gash with a razor; plane/scrape the patch so it is flush with the rest of the base.
