rub the waxver the ski before you iron it on
The rule of thumb is to get the iron JUST hot enough to melt the wax.
If the wax smokes on the iron, you are way to hot. Crank that sucker down.
My tip, buy a used iron from goodwill. I got an iron for 4 bucks, scraper for 10, wax for 10. Still use the same stuff (minus the wax) 2 years later. Love it!
