Question

I am cleaning behind a woman who cleaned tile floors with hardwood floor wax. How can I remove this from the tile floor without ruining the tile or the grout?


Answer

You can safely use stripper on the tile floor. This will loosen the build-up of floor wax, so it can be removed and the floor left clean. You may wish to leave it unfinished or apply a finish designed for this sort of tile.
