I have used and like both the rain chalk, the carpenters chalk, the H.S. Strut brown chalk and the red railroad chalk I believe it is called and I prefer the red chalk myself, seems to give more bite to the way  it grips the striker piece if you know what I mean. I like it on my box calls as well.

I wipe off the old stuff with a paper towel being careful not to get get any hand oils on anything. I think that is what you were asking. If the same kind then just put it over the top of the old stuff unless you feel the stuff on it is contaminated.

I have a huge box of red brick chalk that you cannot hardly get your hands on. I have used rain chalk and still have some , but personally I like the brick. To me it gives more friction in my experience.

I've been cleaning up my hunting stuff during this down time. I when through some stuff that I haven't been into for years and I found some old waterproofing powder made by Lohman. It was still in the package, lol, so I have no idea if it's any good or not.
