    How do you wax/clean your ski?

    Last Saturday I washed and scrubbed my RXP and the GTX, then waxed and polished with mothers carnuba cleaner wax. they looked great, we threw them in the lake, rode, water beaded so nice. By the time we loaded and got them back 1/2 block to our cabin they were a mess, water spots all over. Wrong product or what?

    I had planned to trailer them then pull them around to the cabin and dry them, but in 5 minutes out of the water they were trashed, especially the black of the RXP

    50/50 mix of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle will cut thru those water spots. It's not the wax job. It's the dirt in the water you ride in. Works great! Smells like salad dressing!

    Ed is right ... I have not waxed my ski in quite awhile and it still looks perfect. After I am done riding for the day, I spray the entire ski with 50/50 vinegar/water and towel it dry. Cuts all water spots, ski looks great, no wax needed.

    Carnauba based waxes produce a nice shine but have limited durability. I apply the same long lasting wax to my boats that I use on my cars:
