I have tired several times to strip and wax this tile. The wax came off fairly easily, but when I waxed it, there is streaking in places and it looks very dull.I used all new materials for this. Will it not stick because of the age of the tile? The tile is 42 years old.

If your tile is vinyl - here are a couple of good site to review:
