Before you wax, get the gunk off your bases with Swix Citrus Solvent Base Cleaner. Chances are the last time you skied was in the spring, when the snow down at the base lodge wasn’t exactly pure white. Well, all that sludge gets stuck to your boards, and throwing a hot wax on top just helps it penetrate deeper, killing your ride and shortening the life of your skis or snowboard. This solvent is citrus-based so it’s not toxic to the environment, and it’ll get your P-Tex clean and ready for race prewax or hot waxing. *AVAILABLE FOR GROUND SHIPPING ONLY.

Make your board look brand new

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Had alot of rust for park lap in Park City was bummed and made not to self never buy snowboard with white on the bottom. Then I found this it took it all off I was very impressed seems like it will last a long time. I agree with the other reviews it does out dry out your board a bit apply a good wax right after for sure.

Cleans base well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not sure why some reviews here claim it dries out the base. Dirt, grime and tree sap will slow you down. No sense waxing over that stuff. Use this and then wax for a super smooth base!

I've followed up with waxes which got bad reviews and it was incredibly fast. Maybe if they cleaned their base they wouldn't complain about bad wax jobs.


  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Stuff works great. Gets old crap wax off. Debatable if it dries out board or not. I use it once every season to give board a good clean. Funny though, Wore latex gloves when applying and gloves fell completely apart. Citrus breaks down the latex.

Cleans the h**l out of the base

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There is alot of talk about if you should or shouldn't use a solvent to clean your base. And I'm not here to tell you to but I have to say after using this a few times I was sold. Its unbelievable how much dirt and grime comes off the base when you use this product. Beats having it stuck there and messing with the how the wax will adhere to the base. I use it before each wax. Good stuff

good stuff here

    this stuff works great. it completely removes the wax. great scent and you don't need much goes a long way

    Great for Cleaning

      Works great with a quick rub to get all the gnarlies out out your bases. Just make sure to do a hot wax after this, followed by several layers of wax allowed to thoroughly penetrate the ptex or else your bases can become severely dried out.
