General Description: For new ski and snowboard waxers a good all around brush is one of the most important tools in your wax kit. The Swix White Nylon Oval Brush is an affordable all-purpose brush for basic paraffin waxes. The Oval White Nylon Brush is coarse enough to use it as your only brush for recreational ski maintainance. For best results, make a few quick passes with the Oval White Nylon brush before waxing to open the base structure. Since the Oval White Nylon Brush is designed to be an all around brush, it should also be used for brushing wax out of the structures (base patterns) of ski and snowboard bases after you have used the acrylic scraper to remove the bulk of applied wax.
