How do I get Mop and Glo wax off a tile floor?
By Connie from Roanoke, VA
Ceramic tile? If so then try vinegar. If it's vinyl tile then you can pick up floor stripper from Sam's Club or Costco and follow the directions on the package.
Ammonia! Mix half & half with water, use a very wet mop, let sit a minutes, voila! Wax all gone! Make sure to have lots of ventilation and do NOT mix with bleach!
Use AquaMix Heavy Duty Tile and Grout Cleaner, available at most floor covering stores or possibly at Lowe's or Home Depot. Follow directions carefully! Then, use Armstrong Once N Done to clean your tile, never anything that will "coat" your floor. If you want to protect your grout, use Sealer's Choice Gold (kind of expensive, but you'll only have to do it once every few years). It is great and you just "paint" your grout lines -- grout only, not tile.
Be sure to use only quailty cleaning products on your floors. This is not a sales pitch, it is from personal experience. Do not try "home remedies" on porous material such as tile and grout!
What do I use to remove Mop & Glo build on my wood floors?

A strong solution of ammonia in mop water or hands and knees; your preference will remove wax build up on vinyl flooring. keep changing the water as it will soil quickly.

I have question about rubberized based with thin wood looking top kitchen flooring. I don't know if it's actual rubber or just what type of material? This floor has been in a kitchen for close to 35 years or so and has had approximately the same amount of years of Mop & Glo applied to it from the time it was put in. As far as the owners know has never been stripped.
I am looking for a way of keeping the floor clean, and give it a shine "naturally" without leaving any type of layer or residue behind that could be scratched, marred or scraped by seats or chairs sliding across it or even a large dog romping and running across it and skidding leaving its nail marks on it. Is there any such way cleaning and shining a wood looking for that wouldn't leave a layer behind that a dogs nails would leave scrapes and scratches in it?
