Safety concerns
This item is very slippery which put you in high risk for falling or slipped if you walked over it.

    Home Depot, thank you so much for this opportunity to rate your wax paper. It’s very papery and waxy. You did it. 10 points to Slitherin.

    Not the product I was expecting. Return for a thicker paper.

    I ordered this to use as a release barrier while mounting laminate with contact cement. I needed something akin to waxed paper, but wider. This did the trick. I was able to laminate a door without having to piece together.

    Worked great, attached with masking tape!
    It worked very well for me, with engineered hardwood going on top. Attaching it to my subfloor, I found the best way was to use masking tape, like ScotchBlue #2093 Sharp Lines Painter's Tape. The tape is very thin, and it stuck to the wax paper and plywood subfloor just fine. First, I tried stapling, but the staples tore through the paper. A couple things I liked about the wax paper, was that it made it easy to slide the hardwood into place, and any loose dirt or sawdust was easily seen to be wiped off.

        This waxed paper underlayment is very thin an tears extremely easy. It has to be taped down to stay in place and you must be careful walking on it or it will tear. It needs to be a little thicker and/or sturdier in my opinion.

            Wax paper
            No matter how careful you are this paper is too thin. It tears easily. Pick a thicker product for flooring underlayment.

            Way too easily ripped. Too thin to provide any noise reduction. Clearly just a moisture barrier, but rips, when moving hardwood into place.

            Worked well in ensuring smooth movement of 3/4” flooring into place. Need to walk lightly on it though, but I prefer this over red rosin paper.

            Does the job fine. Would like something a little thicker to even out some slight unevenness in the floor. Overall a good product at a decent price

            It’s sturdy enough to handle. Goes down easy. Good underlayment if used for wood flooring over existing floor. Made the job much cleaner and easier. Covered a 15x15 kitchen with left over for a small 5x4 pantry. Good price.

              Take this review with a grain or two of salt as I wanted to use this in a different way than underlayment. I wanted to use it to line trash cans rather than plastic, to help keep them cleaner as plastic does not degrade well in the environment. I also need to avoid using plastic bags around my place as I have a pet with pica who eats them. He's had surgery twice for this ($). The paper is pretty thin and can tear easily. I was hoping it was more sturdy. I'll need to wrap more layers to accomplish my intent. I had a chance to see some waxed food wrap and it would have been much better for the task.
