Swix Fiberlene is a fine fibrous cloth that is ideal for cleaning ski bases and applying race wax overlays. It holds base cleaning solvents well and has a high tensile strength, so won't tear as easily as paper towel. Fiberlene may also be use with a hot wax iron for applying a clean layer of wax. The paper absorbs the residual dirt and excess wax while leaving a thin layer of wax that does not need to be scraped. Use this as the final step in base cleaning and polishing.

FAST CLEAN IRON METHOD
This is a simple method for applying glide waxes without scraping or brushing. Fix a length of Fiberlene paper in the clips of your iron (if you have them). Use enough to fully cover the base plate of the iron. Make one pass of about 25 seconds from tip to tail. For snowboards repeat the tip to tail pass until the entire base is ironed. The paper will absorb excess wax and dirt from the base. Let the skis or board cool. That's it!
In very cold conditions light brushing is useful otherwise there is no need for scraping or brushing.
