Muriatic acid and tile floors
(-----) February 18, 2008
I AM LIVING IN PANAMA AND NEED TO CLEAN OLD WAX BUILD UP OFF OF TILE FLOORS, EVERYONE HERE SAYS TO USE Muriatic Acid [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] . CAN ANYONE HELP ME WITH HOW TO GO ABOUT DOING THIS? I THINK IT IS 1 PART MURATIC ACID TO 4 PARTS WATER. HOW SHOULD I APPLY THE SOLOUTION, REMOVE IT, AND WHAT SHOULD I PUT ON THE FLOORS TO RESEAL THEM? ANY ADVICE IS WELCOME.

Everyone may be wrong. I would never use muriatic acid inside a home as it will corrode everything. I also don't think it's a good solvent for wax anyway.
