Americana Question

So, pulled out my Americana to do a wax on my car and the was dried out (would not go on the applicator). Flipped the puck over and it was soft and coule be applied. Is this normal and is there a way to wake it back up?

I'm guessing you didn't notice the wax paper on top.

Have used it several times, so yes the paper was removed.

Was it left with the top off for any extended period of time?

By any chance got a picture of the 'bad' side as it is now?

Its not unusual to get a slightly 'chalky' layer on top of the wax from prolonged storage, but just a few swipes with the apps should wake it right back up again.

Hard to tell based on the picture for sure, but it looks consistent thru and thru.

When you rubbed the app on the wax you didn't get any transfer? What about if you just rub your finger in a circular motion on it, what happens?

At the time it would not transfer just chalk off. Tried to scrape some off. Just flipped it and the other side was fine. I stored it with a few sprays of detail spray to see of that helps at all.
