Wax skis by banding the brakes and securing the skis in a ski vise. Clean the skis with a spray-on ski cleaner, and apply wax along the length of a ski by melting it against a waxing iron. Iron each ski from tip to tail, and then scrape and brush the ski.Continue Reading
Warm the ski to room temperature. Secure the brakes with a rubber band, and fasten the ski in a ski vise.
Spray ski cleaner along the length of the ski. Wipe the cleaner off, and let the ski dry.
Hold a block of ski wax against a hot waxing iron above one end of the ski. Slowly move the block and iron along the length of the ski so the wax flows in a smooth, unbroken line along the ski.
Place the warm iron on the tip of the ski, and slowly move the iron to the tail. Repeat twice.
Holding a plastic scraper at an angle, smoothly run it from the tip of the ski to the tail. Repeat. Brush the length of the ski tip-to-tail twice with a coarse brush and then twice with a soft brush.
