How to remove wax from flooring

Cinnamon or pine tree scented candles are all well and good, until one of them gets knocked over and your hardwood floors are covered in wax. Not to worry though, you don’t have to start sanding the floor just yet. Use a scraper to remove the hardened wax, going in the direction of the wood grain, then cover the stain with was paper or a towel and iron on a low-medium heat, being careful not to burn it – this should help you get rid of any stubborn bits. You can also use TORLYS EcoCare Cleaning Kit to help make cleaning your hardwood floors a breeze so that your floors keep looking fresh.
