Jubilee Wax


Do you remember Jubilee Wax? That stuff was fantastic! I even liked the smell! Unfortunately, it is discontinued. I called S.E. Johnson and they confirmed that it is no longer being made or sold. Why!? I've tried every other thing on the market, but nothing gets crayon marks off of walls and doors better than Jubilee Wax. I know because I have a little left in an ancient bottle and my son and I just went through the house doing crayon damage control after my daughter wreaked havok with Crayola Green, Purple, Red and Seafoam.

For those who are lamenting with me, there is hope-or at least I hope there's hope. Click on this link:

and you'll find a similar product. I plan on buying it and giving it a try. I'll post a review when I get it. If you have used this product, please let me know what you thought of it.

I always used it to clean my sneakers when I was younger. Mom and dad always had some under the sink.

it looks familiar, but i've never used it. i find that magic erasers work wonderfully at getting crayon off our of kitchen table. fortunately, we haven't had any crayon + wall incidents, yet. i read somewhere that someone used already used dryer sheets to remove crayone marks...maybe give it a try!

I've been trying to think of the name of it for months. I even called my Mom to ask her if she remembered the name of the was. But she couldn't either. I remembered it was made by Johnson so I looked on the Johnson web site and nothing. Then today the name just popped in my head. And I found your website. Thanks for the info. I'll try this other product. But Jubilee was the best. Wonder why they quit making it. Probably eaiser to just pray polish than to hand wax. We are getting to lazy.

I remember as a kid taking it to grammar school on the last day as we had to bring the wax and rags to clean our desks and help clean the classroom....(Catholic School...many years ago.
