How To Remove Face Wax Off Linoleum Floor
Wondering how to remove face wax off a linoleum floor? Getting face wax off a linoleum floor is a tedious task, but it is not impossible. It is so easy to have accidents when using face wax. It's too bad when it lands on a linoleum floor you have a mess.
Things you'll need:
- Disposable rag
- Sharp blade
- Act fast. The first thing you need to do to remove face wax off a linoleum floor is to wipe it up quickly. Stop what you are doing and wipe it off the floor with a rag you won't mind throwing away. While the face wax is still a liquid is your bet chance of getting most of it off the linoleum. Wax dries really fast, so save yourself some work in the beginning.
- Let the face wax dry. Once face wax dries, it gets hard and can be chipped or scraped off a linoleum floor. You want all the remaining face wax to get hard so it is easier to remove.
- Get an ice cube to dry face wax. Put an ice cube directly on the face wax and hold it there for about a minute. Depending on how thick the face wax is, it will take to harden. When the face wax hardens it will lift off the linoleum floor on its own.
- Get a sharp blade to scrape the face wax. A straight razor blade or a knife are good suggestions. Remove the ice cube and carefully lift the face wax from the linoleum floor using the edge of the blade. Make sure to do this at a upward angle so you don't cut into the floor. You may have to repeat the ice and scrape method a couple of times to remove all the wax.
- Use a pair of tweezers for the rest. Linoleum flooring has grooves in it. You will not be able to use a blade for the remaining face wax stuck in the grooves. A pair of tweezers works well to get the rest of the wax. Use the ice cube technique and it should be easy to pick out the remaining face wax.
