I used regular candle wax a couple years ago..... my ex girlfriend's 'nice candles' at that.... That was one of the reasons why she's now an ex. I really got the riot act read to me that time.
After all.... wax is just wax...right?
Guys..... I don't recommend this method unless you're trying to extricate yourself from an outgrown relationship.
Incident aside..... I rarely waxed my skiis for storage. If I were to do it, I'ld put on a warm wax expecting to ski it off on a fall day which may be semi cold.
