The most effective way to remove a wax build-up on linoleum is to use ammonia. This is pretty strong smelling stuff- so have plenty of ventilation- also DO NOT mix ammonia with bleach - it creates a dangerous gas. Mix approximately 1/2 cup of ammonia in a bucket of warm water, and wash as you normally would. This should leave your floors looking like new.
A few things worth mentioning; You need to wet the floor with a cloth soaked in the ammonia water, but only for a couple minutes to avoid damaging the shiny layer of your linoleum. The floor then needs to be scrubbed with plenty of elbow grease (the most time-consuming part of the job), and then rinsed with clean water.
I have tryed this it has not worked is there any thing else i can use or try.
