Remember, we’re talking hot-wax (the operative word here is “hot”), and forthat you’ll need an iron. Don’t use your mom’s good one (unless she doesn’twant it back), go out and buy one. But before you pop for that spendy ironat the ski shop or out of a catalog, go by the local thrift-store and getan old beater (make sure it works!) for a couple bucks and change.
