Jubille And Smooth Cooktops(Substitute)

pcwearyNovember 22, 2010

Well, as luck would have it, I finally found a product that is amazing on black smooth cooktops. After using all kinds of cleaners, I found my last can of spray Jubilee Kitchen Wax (had ordered a bunch from SCJohnson) and tried it. Gosh, it was great...no more 5 min. of buffing to get smears off. No hazing. Dirt gone.

Now, the problem. They do not make this product anymore and I am curious about a substitute.

Does anyone know of a product like Jubilee?

I remember Jubilee kitchen wax from the 50's. My Mom used to use it on her linoleum kitchen floor. She'd wash the floor with Spic and Span powder, then apply Jubilee wax. I remember having her yell at me if I attempted to enter the kitchen while the wax was drying. I'm pretty much amazed you could find this product.

I too remember it and how my Mom used and liked it.

According to the S C Johnson site, they suggest using their Pledgeî Protection Plus, that can meet a similar need.

Hi pcweary,

Well, I had a fit when I saw Jubilee was discontinued, & wrote SC Johnson. Yes, it's gone & yes, they recommend Pledgeî Protection Plus or regular Pledge, depending on the material of the surface. I feel as though I've lost an old friend.

So I went to Orchard Supply Hardware (a smallish chain on the West Coast), which has an extensive cleaning products section. I noticed products specifically for cooktops, but wanted something like Jubilee, that can be used on chrome, porcelain, stainless steel, etc. I found CLR Metal Clear, which cleans Corian, porcelain, chrome, SS, aluminum, laminated countertops, granite & enamel. CLR MC is a liquid, as Jubilee used to be, & I have high hopes that it will be a good replacement for Jubilee.

Does anybody know where to buy GlassWax? When I was a kid, my Mom had a set of Christmas stencils she would tape to a windown, then dab a sponge in GlassWax and apply it to the stencil. If you wanted color, you could mix food coloring in with the Glass Wax. My kids never got to see this, they're grown now. But maybe someday I'll have Grandchildren who would appreciate coloring the windows. The best part, of course, when the season was over, all you had to do was tale a soft cloth and rub the designs off, and your windows woukd be clean!
