How do I remove self stick tile flooring?

There's a tool that looks like a hoe only larger without the curve in the metal and is on a long wooden handle. Works perfectly for sliding under tile and breaks up easily. When the edge feels dull from overuse, just resharpen and the work goes smoothly.
Rent a wallpaper steamer from your local rental store. Set the steamer on the tile for about 10 seconds. Use a putty knife to get under a corner and then you can start pulling it up.

I am having a heck of a time trying to remove self stick tiles on kitchen floor and ultimately removing the sticky stuff that they leave behind. I would really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
