What Is Future Floor Wax?

Future is a brand of floor wax formerly made by Johnson & Johnson. It has been discontinued as an individual product but partially lives on as an additive in Pledge floor finish.

The original Future floor wax was very similar to a clear acrylic paint, according to Make magazine. The floor wax became popular with makers of models and figurines as an inexpensive substitute for clear acrylic paint. When Johnson & Johnson discontinued the brand in 2008, it incorporated it as a component of certain types of Pledge (labeled as “with Future Shine”). This same formulation is sold outside of the United States under a variety of names, such as Klir, Sols Plus and Pronto Wax.
