This stuff is great! About 12 years ago I started putting wax on a ‘shinyl-vinyl’ no-wax floor. I figured wax would just make it hold up better… WRONG! I’ve tried cleaning it off several times after it started getting so yellow, with no success. Now I’m selling the property and really needed the floors to clean up well – or replace them. Now, it was some work, but the floor came out looking like new! I know that because there was some vinyl that was unexposed as it was under carpet that was taken up for replacement – it was , literally, still new. After cleaning with Trewax Vinyl and Linoleum Instant Wax Remover the old and ‘new’ vinyl were identical.

Fantastic results, easy to use, ventilate, hire young or short people to do the scrubbing if you don’t want to get on the floor.

It’s a bit noisome to the nose, use good ventilation to avoid asphyxiation. Put it down freely on patches of floor, say 5′ x 1′ sections at a time, with a brush and bucket. I just found it was easiest to get on the floor on my knees and scrub and scoot along. Return to starting point where it’s sat the longest and scrub up the broken up wax layer. Wipe up the wax goop with cloth and solution bucket to prevent removed layers re-drying in place and needing more scrubbing. Once done, give the floor a wash down with water before moving to the next section. Apply Gold Label Wax to refinish. 10 years of yellowed mop and glo gone and a nice clean floor brightening up the kitchen to sell the house. Made a huge difference.

I am 75 years old and had tried everything else after a cleaning service ruined a large kitchen no wax floor& also a beautiful ceramic tile laundry room.This product did the trick I used 2 buckets a long handled scrub mop and a good sponge mop.You should do a small area @ a time so that you can scrub after spraying then rinse off with the sponge mop,you don’t want any old wax to be left behind ,when you are done just rinse off well with clean water.I used 3/1 in the kitchen & 2/1 in the laundry room.Voila ,can’t wait to put the sealer wax in the kitchen .A younger person I am sure could do it much quicker than I.It is a great product!!

This stripper took off some serious wax build up that I was having trouble getting off. I mixed it 50% with water and sprayed it on the floor (using a garden sprayer), and let it sit for about 10 minutes. It mopped up ALL THE WAX with ease. A couple spots I had to redo, close to the molding, etc., but what a great job it did. I used the Trewax wax after and it gave me a great shine and it is still shining. Great Product!

This stuff works.

I would question the word “instant” in the title. Maybe it’s because I was removing 12 years worth of floor wax but it was not instant. I applied to small area, let it sit, then I used a scrubber on my knees to finish the job. I could never have done it without this remover. Please read the directions on the bottle. I had to replace vinyl tiles in my kitchen after some water damage. I had the original tiles but due to 12 years of wear and wax they weren’t even close in matching. I thought I was going to have to have the whole kitchen / dining area re-tiled $$$$$$ The flooring man said I would never get the two tiles to match. My son suggested the problem was wax buildup. I used this over the whole floor after it was re-tiled, then applied a couple of layers of new floor wax / shine and now you can’t see where the tiles were replaced. This stuff and some elbow grease saved me hundreds of dollars. If you aren’t needing to bring the wax level down to ZERO (which I was) maybe you can “instantly” just use your mop and this stuff.

Good stuff

Been using this product for over 15 yrs. Do to the high cost of buying this in the small size bottle locally it was delegated to floor cleaner use only. Not anymore.

This works really well. I bought a house with years of dirty wax build up on no wax linoleum. It required some effort, Hands and knees with a scrub brush but the result was well worth it.

Good for removing Zep wax from RV

I’m probably using this for an unusual chore …stripping zep wax off a motor coach. I thought straight ammonia would do the trick but there were several sections I wanted to strip off completely (bad original prep) and it would have taken hours and hours. The Trewax really did the job in the areas I wanted to strip completely, you do need to scrub, swirl it in, and in about 30 seconds the old wax starts to dissolve. I did need to use it straight though and they are not kidding when they say DO NOT LET IT DRY … or it just turns it to a mess of wax swirls. Diluted did not do it for me.

Wonderful stuff! Perfect for prefinished hardwood floors.

This stuff is amazing on removing the wax buildup from hardwood floors. I tried everything else first. Mineral spirits, elbow grease and scouring pads, acetone even. Nothing was getting that stuff up. The Trewax was quick and easy(ish). You’ve got to be ready for some scrubbing. So only do small areas at a time. I would spray the remover over a 10 square foot area and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then I used a hand brush with a handle and fully scrubbed the area — into the cracks and corners. Then I resprayed the solution back over the same area and let it sit another 5 minutes. After that, I wiped it up with damp towels and then sponge mopped it. Beautiful! Only drawback were the fumes. My family complained that they were getting headaches (and they were, of course, not even the ones doing the work!). It was very strong, so don’t try to do too much at a time without gloves and a mask.

when I opened the package I found the neck of the plastic bottle had been crushed. With a little work from pliers I managed to get it straightened out. After opening it and breaking the seal, I read the instructions. It says it should not be used on laminated wood flooring. Something that was not indicated in the description of the product. I decided to give it a try anyway, using sparingly so as not to saturate the wood laminate. It works OK if you spray some on a small area, rub it in and let it set for a few minutes then apply another amount using one of those green scrubbing pads, then wipe up with paper towels.
