Johnson's Paste Wax

Page 1 of 5  
I have read on some posts on how hard it's getting to find some. I read on another post that Lowes sells it still. I found it at Amazon for $20.16/3pk. also SC Johnson's website is selling it for $33.06/6pk. Just wanted to pass this info along. A 6 pack my be excessive but I figure i'll have some to pass on to my grandchildren years down the road. The links are below.

I actually have a can of Johnsons that I took out of my grandfathers shop. The can appears to be built to survive the cold war and must be about 50 years old.

to buy Trewax at a grocery store last time I needed some. I think it works better, but even if not it's "as good as" and easier to find.

There were sure piles of the Johnson's wax at Ft. Leonard Wood PX back when I took basic('66)....I just bet there are a few cans there yet.

There are a lot of automotive waxes that should be as good. Just avoid the silicone based waxes.

That's trickier than you might think. I have a can of Kit paste wax which touts its carnauba content, but doesn't mention silicones. Emailed customer support, got a quick response: it has silicone oils. So, unless you check with the manufacturer, you won't be sure that can of automotive wax is free of silicone oil. I'd bet that they all have it. (Northern Labs' (makers of Kit) response pointed out that they make Goddard's Cabinet Makers Paste Wax, US$9.99/4.5oz tin, if anyone is interested.)

Oh, and on that whole discontinued wax thread from a bit ago, now that I'm Mr. Mom, and have done some, yerk, shopping, hork, I can report that Wal-Mart does have this stuff on the chemicals isle in high quanties.

Is it still $4.72 a tin? That's where I got mine and what I paid a few years ago.

Somewhere in that ballpark probably. I didn't really note the price on anything. I just threw it in the buggy. That's why I went $37 over budget. Oops. Oh well, she doesn't need her cash allowance this week anyway.

I did't know it is hard to find. I get it at the local Ace Harware store. Dave

I think a lot of this started when I noticed I couldn't get it at Wally World anymore, then some Kanukistani convinced me that SC Johnson had decided to discontinue the stuff. I went on a holy quest to find a new supply of my favorite wax, and posted the results. That's what some of the comments in this current thread have alluded to.
So it's all Silvan's fault again.

So you're the one I have to blame for the box with the lifetime supply of Johnson's wax sitting in my closet. I ordered it right after reading the thread on here over a year ago (maybe two Christmas's ago?) about how it would no longer be available. ;-)

No, not exactly. I never said it was being discontinued. I just went to some length to let people know where they could still get it while believing what someone else had warned me about.
How many surplus cans do you have? I'll buy some off of you as a favor, if you want. If you're not worried about it, I'll just go buy a can at Lowe's. :)

I'm not worried about it at all. Shipping would be way more than your time and gas to get it from Lowe's. Sometimes attempted humor just doesn't come across the computer screen as well as it should; that was just good-natured ribbing, not a complaint.

It always _is_.

Jake to the rescue! I'll buy that stash from you for a whopping 12 cents on the dollar, sir, and I'll even pay half the shipping. I like the stuff. Got my address, Mark?

No, AAMOF I don't. Please follow the following steps.
1. Send me your address 2. Hold your breath 3. Wait
:-)
I'm perfectly happy with my JW stash, who knows, one of these days they really may abandon the market -- then where will the rest of you be?

The adddress is on my website, I can't hold my breath that long or I turn purple and pass out, and I'm very good at waiting. (Um, I lied about that last one. I'm impatient as hell.)

In the Renaissance Wax line at Wally World, of course.

I've been reading posts about Johnson's paste wax being discontinued for three years now. Evidently no one at Lowe's has seen them yet.
