Well your 1-2 day drying time is an indicator of something....meaning water is trapped in the layers of your skate. Plus, you gotta take account of water in places you can't get to like your holders.

If you really wanted a clean skate, shaving cream might be a possibility too...and some ppl say spray scented alcohol from the drug store works. But alcohol dissolves stuff, so might not be the best idea either.
