I've found there are two kinds of waxes, those that are sticky and those that are slick.

Mr Zogs is a sticky wax, and I think the best one of those out there. I've used it off and on for many years. Kind of expensive though and I don't like how it picks up hair and dust and can get all over the inside of my car.

On the other end, there's paraffin and candle wax. About 6-7 years ago I bought a brick of Paraffin wax for about $5 and I'm not even half way through it. It's much harder and is a little slick when you put it on, but if you go light with it or melt it with a heat gun, it seems to work fine.

Right now and for the last year, I've been doing the paraffin thing. I go over the bottom half of the blade lightly and rub it in a bit with my fingers. Seems to help with the snow buildup.
