For those who've been using Future/Revive It for gloss applications on their projects, it's apparently been confirmed that Johnson & Johnson has discontinued the product. A friend on a scale modeler group got this reply from J&J:

"Thank you for reaching out! I’m sorry to share Pledge Floor Gloss is no longer being made. This product was discontinued in January of 2022. I recommend to check your local grocery stores where inventory may not be turned over as quickly. That said, your continued interest has been shared with the Pledge team.

We’re always working on new and exciting products and sometimes, in order to make room for them at the store, we have to decide which ones to take off the shelf. It’s a decision we don’t take lightly, and consumer and retailer interest helps us choose which stay."

So if you rely on this stuff for your projects, stock up ASAP.

I must say this is a new one for me... Not something I really would have considered

It's a scale modeling staple. I know Tony uses on many/most of his builds. I use it mostly in spot application to make sure a surface is optimal for accepting a decal. I hope Tony stocks up?!

I have a bottle of Future left over from years ago. Perhaps I didn't apply it well, but it ended up yellowing my Saturn V, and looking generally dingy those years ago.

I've done scale modeling my whole life, but I can't say I've ever heard of this.  I've always just used clear-coat spray paint.

I've seen that happen when it goes on too thick or when it drips - especially on white color subjects.
