Lucie gave me a hint (see below) to solve my problem. Thanks Lucie, is 
there a reason why you havent posted it to this newsgroup? If someone 
has the same problem and he finds a solution here, he wont have to ask 
in the first place.

However ther are still a bunch of things I dont understand:

If I change sth in base_properties in CMFPlone/skins, those changes 
still exists if I remove my skin product. I heard sth about copying 
base_properties into my skin folder and use that file for my CSS files, 
but I have no idea how to do that.

Apart from that changing the base_properties in CMFPlone/skins had no 
effect. I've cleared my Browser cache but I dont know how to clear the 
zope/plone cache. My Skin product is already in debug mode, so most 
changes I do I see instantly.

You see I'm still confused, can anyone help?
