Removing Wax Ring Residue


Plumber left wax ring residue on, well, just about everything he touched. I'm not too concerned with the toilet surfaces but what would be recommended to clean it from the vinyl floor. Sudsy ammonia didn't get it.

FYI - I stopped using wax seals a few years back. It's almost a pleasure picking up toilet with a waxless seal under it. If that's possible !!

Any decent pine oil based cleaner will do it.

Hair blow dryer. Heat and wipe when soft.
