How can I clean candle wax off of linoleum?

Wax Removal from Linoleum Floor

To remove candle wax from linoleum, first chip off as much of the surface wax as possible, using a dull knife. Then, place several layers of paper towel over remaining wax, and apply a warm iron to draw wax into the paper towels. Replace the paper towels if they become saturated.

This works great. Just be sure to start with a WARM iron, if needed you can always turn it to a higher temp, but you don't want to melt the floor!

An ice pack, the kind you use in insulated lunch bags, work great at removing wax without the need of scraping or the risk of burning the floor.
