Fantastic to have all this in one bottle! Always start a new waxing session by cleaning the ski base with PURE CLEAN & GLIDE. Dab the liquid onto the ski with the bottle's sponge attachment and wipe down with a clean cloth until it comes away clean. Once clean, let the ski base dry for around 10-15 minutes. Doing this cleaning procedure vastly improves the absorption of wax layers applied on top since the dirt and old wax can really clog up the base if not removed. The product also improves the durability of waxes applied on top due to the hardening compounds it contains.
