ethanh100Yeah I was thinking about ptex and realized there is a black flame coming from it so not a good idea lol. Does wax even emit any smoke or is it all vapor. I know they say these smoke alarms detect peoples vapes but in my experience they dont, and I dont even see how that would work. And about getting wax everywhere I figured Ill just put a big trash bag down.
Wax shouldn't put off smoke or vapor unless it is getting too hot. You're just supposed to melt it not vaporize it. Don't use the wax you smoke on your skis and vice versa.
I don't think you're supposed to ptex in the house at all because it's toxic and kinda dangerous. When it's rainy sometimes I do it in my mudroom back entrance thingy with the door and windows open though but it's probably way smarter to go outside. I've caught bath towels on fire with ptex drips. You don't want to be doing it over a trash bag for sure because the ptex will burn/ melt right through the bag and probably stick it to your floor.
Is there an outlet outside somewhere or can you just run an extension cord out the window? Put two dorm chairs right out of the back window to set your skis on and run the cord out there and you'll be golden.
