Cleanliness is next to radliness.

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.

Here's what others have to say...

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.

Its cleans, almost to good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It will clean everything, really really well. Be prepared to do 3 coats of hot wax to get your board back because this will dry the hell out of your board.

Yes it smells like oranges

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

This always sells out, buy it now! Works great to clean the base, not toxic. Even works to get off sticker glue on car windows. Love it. This bottle should last you at least 2 seasons or more.

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.
