Typically, I have just used a P-tex candle, and never given any thought to cleaning the base first. This time around, I'm looking for something more durable/proffesional, as the skis are almost brand new. There is not enogh time for me to order materials, so I stopped by the local shopd this morning and picked up a length of P-tex welding rod for a price. Unfourtunatly, there was no way for them to sell me base cleaner.
Anyone have good recomendations for "off the shelf" base cleaners? I'm sure I have read something on here somewhere about household cleaners. In the end, when I have more time, I'll end up ordering the correct stuff.
