Keeping wax in the garage in this heat we are having

I have variety of waxes, mainly sample pots. Will they be ruined due to the heatwave we are having? I keep them in the garage. Have read of people using fridges to keep waxes cool.

Its just a general question, I have a variety of waxes from different companies.

Are there also waxes that CAN be used in direct sunlight? Itching to wax the car but its too hot and sunny (1st world problem!).

My waxes are stored in the garage out of direct sunlight in one of those attache tool cases.
All waxes are fine.
I tend not to clean or wax the car in direct sunlight and wait until the car is in shade.
Meguires ultimate liquid and paste wax is a breeze to use in the sunlight but it is actually a sealant......think they just use the word wax to sell more in the uk.
I still wouldn't use it on panels that are very hot.
If you are waxing then just do 1 panel at a time with only a minute or two cure time.

My waxes are stored in the garage and the big, dark, metal garage door faces the sun. I've never had any problems with them and we have days approaching 50 degrees! I'm sure you'll be fine in the UK 'heatwave'
