    Serves double-duty in the shop for cleaning up a hefty mess of apres refreshments.

    Instead of using half a dozen cheap paper towels to wipe wax residue from the bases of your cross country skis, snowboard, or alpine skis, grab a single Swix Fiberlene Cleaning and Ironing Towel and get the job done quick. Tough fiberlene construction absorbs any leftover chemicals or moisture during base prep, and the convenient, disposable design means you won't have a pile of wax-covered rags to run through the washing machine when you're done.

    Perfect for a Purpose

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This Swix fiberlene towel is a necessary addition to your tuning set up. The fiberlene picks up all the base debris, filings and dust that will contaminate your base prior to waxing, not to mention a clean wipe post scraping and brushing. Paper towels, hand towels and shop rags, just don't stack up.

    Excellent for kick and glide wax removal

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When it comes to any sort of scrubbing activity or wiping, Fiberlene truly leaves little residue and beats paper towels by a long run. For removing fluoros and kick wax, this is crucial for spreading thin layers of solvents and then scrubbing dirt and wax out. Large rolls are available, but if you fold a piece into a 2 inch square it last a while.

    does NOT make a good bath towel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    But it's pretty rad for skis. The dust and lint free fiberlene is the best last step before waxing. I like to brush and wash and fibertex my skis before waxing. All of that breaks down the existing wax and any dirt or other undesirable object that gets onto/into your bases.

    The fiberlene is a great way to give your skis a final wipe to pick up or push off any remaining debris.

    Swix supplies the buyer with a hefty roll. It doesn't take more than a foot or two to get the job done. So one roll usually means a lot of succsssful cleanings and waxing. This is one of those products that doesn't really have an "off brand" or "generic" brand equivalent and that is fine. I'm pleased to send my money to Swix for this product.

    The easiest way to wax your skis.

      We had a Toko auto hot wax machine at the shop I worked at. The other shops in town used a friction wheel for their cheap hot waxes.

      The cloth the Toko machine used was just like the Swix cloth.

      Use very little wax and clean your bases at the same time.

      I melt and drip small drops down the length of the each ski and then do a fairly slow pass down the length of the ski with the bare iron. The hazing of the wax should follow about 3 to 4 inches behind the iron but try not to go over more than 5 inches trailing behind the iron. it is amount of heat and the speed in which you drag the iron. Do not make your iron so hot that it smokes you out of the room and don't heat your bases up so much that the wax stays wet for minutes or longer. I then take my paper and role out a length at the tip and set the iron on it. Let it heat up and start to pull the iron down the length of the ski while pulling the section of cloth simultaneously in between the iron and ski At the end of the ski you will see all the dirt and contaminants embedded in the cloth and it will be wet with wax as you pull it past the tail. Depending on how dirty the cloth is I will either use it to clean the other ski or tear it off and use a clean strip and do another pass down the same ski, then I will use that length on the next ski getting the clean strip dirty and keep repeating until the cloth comes up only wet. I never use base cleaners on skis unless they need base welding. Then I only use the base cleaner on the area being welded.

      You can either use a wax scraper and then a brush if you are racing to get all the extra wax off your bases or if you are a recreational skier I just use a 3M scotch brite pad and give the skis a quick wipe leaving a thin film of wax on the skis.

      Your wax will last so much longer and you won't have all the wax shavings all over the place.

      This cloth should be an essential for anyone doing their own hot waxes.

      Must Have

        The Fiberlene Cleaning and Iron Towels are a must have if you are truly into waxing your skis. It is less about the disposable design and more about helping you spread the wax and clean the bases without chemicals. 100% worth the price.

        SAVES WAX

          Besides the obvious of always having something around to clean the base, this is really great for putting under your iron when distributing the wax on your skis. It will save you wax and protect your precious pores from closing up due to too much heat from the iron. It also rally help to evenly distrbute the wax.

          Good for what it's used for

            Really helps for cleaning and managing wax on the bases of boards and skis. Swix has a pretty spectacular system that includes a few strategies for applying wax using the fiberlene. Is a great cleaning wipe for prepping bases.
