    oh yes, it is. it becomes almost solid like. so what i do is, before use, let it out of the fridge for about half hour. then it takes a very very liquid form.

    Maybe not the Collies but M16 really does need some cold place. Even if it was 25 degrees celcius at home it spilled its juices all over the cabinet.

    845 does seem to be very much affected in texture by temperature. Even 2-3 degrees make it liquid or jelly. I can't think of a rise in temperature more than 5 degrees, would it become gas then? :)

    I keep all of my waxes in the basement. I have a sizable collection (~40 or so), and have never had a problem.

    I do have a jar of Souveran that I lent to a customer who stored it somewhere and it melted. Upon solidification, it crystallized weird. It works fine, but it looks like nasty slush.

    I have a friend with a few thousand dollars of wax in an aluminum attache case...

    To the OP, keep all of my waxes inside, out of direct sunlight, on a bookshelf. They seem to like it. :shrug:

    Yes, it lets the clients (and on-lookers) know I mean business.

    I wish houses here in AZ have basements!! Well expensive homes do but normal homes typically don't have it... :(

    Thanks for everyone who replied! Much appreciated!

    Bring this topic back, any reason to store QD in a cool fridge? Such as OID, FK, Scholl SW20. Going to use a mini fridge in my apartment to keep wax's in. Going to set the temp on water side, keep temp around 55-60*F if I can.

    You can if you want, but I see no need for it.. jmo

    I've always stored mine in the laundry room where it's between 72-74 degrees. I have four cabinets and a shelf that I store all of my detailing products in including OID and FK and many others with no problems.

    As far a storing carnauba wax in the fridge. I was told by Swissvax it wasn't needed, and Zymol told me they don't house any of their stock, or orders in the fridge.

    If you want to store your waxes in the fridge, I don't guess it won't hurt them.

    I dont store wax's in fridges, just was wondering. Few of my wax's, E-Zyme, Insignis get really soft and like to keep them cooler so they stay harder and "together" so was thinking of using a spare mini fridge, it is half the size of a doom fridge so it is small to keep some wax's in.

    i keep mine in my fridge as well. but not coli 845. if it ever gets too gelled up just heat up some water in a cup and let the bottle of 845 sit in the hot water for a bit. always does the trick for me.

    Only issue is that fridges get too cold from looking around. I am looking at red whine coolers as they can keep internal temps around 60-65 which is just about right. What is the temp of the inside of your fridge chost10?
