Rated 5 out of 5 by from No sticky residue if you use it right! I've been reading these reviews and I've noticed a number of people who found their floor had a sticky residue after using it. You need to understand how this product works. It is a petroleum-based product therefore it melts the old wax off before you apply a final coat to rewax. So if your floor is sticky after using this product you need to clean that area again with the SC JOHNSON Wax until your cloth is clean. Then you know that you have removed all of the old wax. Now you can start putting very thin coats on( usually two is enough) to re-wax your floor. It will be completely clean and absolutely beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful floors! I have been using the One Step floor wax on my hardwood since I moved into my new house in 1985, and people are still asking me how I keep my wood floor looking like new. I have never had to refinish my floors, this wax is the best.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Help I bought this produce about a month a go and put it on my floors, My floors have never been waxed until now. At first I loved it so easy and they looked so nice. But after a few days they felt sticky in places and seemed to collect dirt that would not come off with Just wiping its like it goes right into the wax. I have a little dog and if her feet are a little wet it leaves a mark that do not wipe up. How do I remove all this with out putting on more of this wax. I have hardwood thru out the house but thankfully I only did the dining room and the kitchen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't get the dust up after using this wax. I applied this product as directed to my dark hardwood floors and they look fantastic. Unfortunately, my home has many windows and shows dust immediately. Then the fun began... no matter what type of dust mop pad I use, it simple does not pick up the dust. It appears to be meshing with the wax. After 1 week of applying the wax to the floor, the floor still is sticky. To add to the challenge, if anything is spilled on it, it will not come up. The only solution is to put more wax on it to cover it up. I need your help as this was applied to my entire home on the first floor ( all hardwood flooring). thanks Ed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for quick and lasting shine! I've been using this for a few years now, and would recommend it to anyone looking for something easy-to-use. It takes about an hour to coat 400sq ft of flooring including cleaning the floor beforehand in the event of deeply deposited dirt, or about a half hour with a few quick passes with a dust mop for prep. Those figures include setting up and tearing down. For slightly dirty floors, this will clean the dirt right up, but until you know how much dirt it can clean, for a first-timer, it's best to clean the floor as much as possible before using this product. In the event the floor was extremely dirty on application and there is still dirt embedded under the wax, a second coat can strip the first coat and allow you to get most of the dirt out, which is a plus.In my experience, the best and easiest way to apply is to pour some in a paint roller tray, and use that to saturate a mop, then blot the mop against the tray (after more than a few passes, you may get a few pebbles you missed, and this is great for knocking them off of the mop). This stuff is kind of like paint - you don't want too much, and you don't want too little, so the paint tray helps with getting just the right amount. You want to keep the mop gliding wet on the floor, but not soaking the floor with a trailing puddle of the stuff. Thinner coats are definitely better for this (thinner and more, like rolling paint on a wall, 2 thin coats is better than one thick coat!)It smells strongly of naptha during application, opening of windows is recommended, and if any of it makes contact with an unintended surface and dries, it'll be there for a while (try to pour from the bottle to the bucket on the floor you're going to coat - if you use a table or a countertop and get some drops on and they dry, have fun getting this stuff off, it is extremely durable, for better or for worse. Also, try not to pour any excess down the drain or in the toilet when done, as it'll make a really durable film.It really provides a lasting shine - the last time I used this was 3 months ago, and the floors look immaculate considering!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy I bought this product hoping to put a shine on my hardwood floors. I used it exactly as instructed. It left my floors sticky and cloudy. It felt like they never dried. I steam cleaned my floors and bought a commercial wax at a janitorial supply. My floors are beautiful. Exactly like I thought they would look after I used your product. I wasted my money and time with your product. Is there a guarantee?

SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax offers fine floor care that leaves
wood floors with a rich, luxurious satin finish.

  1. SWEEP or vacuum up loose dirt.
  2. SHAKE well before using.
  3. POUR small pool of product onto floor.
  4. SPREAD evenly with a clean cloth or wax applicator. (Do not use a sponge or sponge mop.) Keep cloth or applicator well saturated. Use just enough rubbing action to loosen dirt.
  5. FINISH with smooth, even strokes in one direction. Use the product liberally so that the floor appears uniformly wet.
  6. LET DRY. The floor will dry to a deep, rich shine in 20–30 minutes. There is no need for buffing.
  7. WASH APPLICATOR in a pail of detergent solution.

First Waxing Only:

SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax and buffing waxes don't go together. Test a small area in a corner. Apply SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax as directed. If it dries dull, then the floor has a layer of old wax which must be removed as follows:

  • Wash a small area with a liberal amount of SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax using a clean, dry cloth.
  • Wipe dry immediately with a clean, dry cloth. Change cloths often to ensure complete pick-up of the old wax.
  • After the old wax is removed from the entire floor, apply SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax as directed above.

Helpful Hints:

  • Check manufacturing instructions before waxing newly laid or recently sealed wood floors.
  • If your floor is worn or porous, additional applications of SC Johnson® One Step No Buff Wax may be necessary.
  • Never use detergents or water on wood floors.
  • Do not use on asphalt tiles.

CAUTION: This product can be an eye irritant. Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water for 20 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Contains surfactants.

Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Do not mix with bleach-containing products, as hazardous fumes may result. If this occurs, leave the room immediately and get fresh air.
