How to Get Floor Wax Marks Out.
If you have been pacing because of floor wax stains, then your search is over. The following are some measures for removing stains that are both efficient and safe that you may do in order to get rid of those annoying spots.
The fibers Rayon, Silk, Triacetate, and Wool
To remove stains from fabric, use a dry-cleaning solvent or K2r Spot Lifter and sponge the affected area. Sponging involves making small strokes with a wet pad while moving outward from the stain’s core (except on acetate blends).
After that, apply a dry spotter to the blemish, and then cover it with an absorbent pad that has been soaked with dry spotter. It should be left alone for as long as any stains are cleaned up. As the stain is being removed, replace the pad.
The dry spotter should be used to keep both the stained area and the pad damp. Use a dry-cleaning solvent to flush (the process of administering stain remover in order to release staining materials and residue from stain removers), and then allow the area to dry out. If there is any trace of the stain left, sponge it with water and then add a few drops of ammonia (take care when using ammonia on silk and wool).
Cover with an absorbent pad that has been drenched with wet spotter. Allow the stain to sit for as long as it takes to remove it. When the pad begins to take up the stain, you should replace it. Ammonia and a wet spotter should be used to keep the stain and the pad moist. Douse the area with water. Repeat the process until there is no more stain to remove.
Floor Wax Spots Should Be Removed From:
Modacrylic, Cotton, Linen, and Acrylic Fabric, as well as Cotton and Linen.
Spandex, Nylon, Olefin, and Polyester are the four types of fibers that make up nylon.
After removing any leftover wax, wipe the affected area with a dry-cleaning solvent or K2r Spot Lifter with a sponge. After applying a dry spotter to the blemish, cover it with an absorbent pad that has been soaked in the dry spotter. Allow it to sit for as long as necessary in order to eliminate any stains.
Tamping (the process of bringing a brush down with gentle strokes on stained sturdy textiles and materials) the affected area and adding a dry spotter as necessary to maintain it damp may assist remove wax that is resistant to removal. After you have finished flushing the area with one of the liquid dry-cleaning chemicals, leave it to dry.
If a stain does not come out after sponging it with water and applying a few drops of ammonia with a wet spotter, the stain should be considered permanent. The affected area should be covered with an absorbent pad, which should be left in place for the duration of any stain removal process. When the pad begins to take up the stain, you should replace it.
Wet spotter and ammonia should be used to keep the stain and pad moist. Repeated tamping will assist in dispersing the discoloration. Douse the area with water. It may be essential to repeat.

Wet and Dry Spotters: How to Make Them Dry Spotters:
To prepare a dry spotter, mix together one part liquid dry-cleaning solvent with eight parts coconut oil, which may be purchased at pharmacies and health food shops. This solution may be kept for a longer period of time provided the container’s lid is screwed on very securely to prevent the solvent from escaping. Coconut oil can be replaced with mineral oil, although the results won’t be nearly as good with mineral oil.
Warning: dry-cleaning agents might be hazardous to your health.
Blend together one part glycerine, one part white dishwashing soap, and eight parts water to make a wet spotter. Always give it a good shake before using. Put the wet spotter in a plastic container that has a squeeze top.
