Hey lilwilson,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

We don't sell Trewax Instant Wax Remover at my Home Depot store here in Atlanta, but I did read up on it on the product page here online.

1 Gal. Instant Wax Remover

It simply states that all you have to do is according to the page is pour it, wipe it, and rinse.

Since it's a non-toxic formula, you can use a lint free rag and even a sponge mop to apply it in manageable areas. For stubborn and dirty spots, be aware that you may likely need to reapply it in those problematic areas. 

It's really easy to use. But for any further questions, let us know here.

Howdy lilwilson,

Using Trewax is similar to most floor wax removers. Here are some guidelines for using floor wax remover:

Start by clearing the floors of any desks, tables, rugs and anything else that could be in the way.

Always follow the directions on the bottle for proper dilution level. Once you have successfully mixed the stripper, you want to test it in a small corner or a place that is not as visible.

Pour floor stripper into a mop bucket and begin to apply it to the floor by flood mopping. It is important NOT to let the floor stripper dry on the floor. Once you have mopped the selected area, allow the stripper to dwell for 5-10 minutes. Also, if you will be using this same mop bucket for anything other than floor stripping, you may want to use a plastic trash bag as a liner to avoid cross contamination.

After the product has been allowed to work, proceed to scrub off the old wax. This can be done either manually or by an electric floor scrubber. Some areas, such as corners, receive less traffic and thus have more wax build-up. Make sure to take your time in these areas as to remove any build-up.

Once you have finished scrubbing the floor, it is time to remove the wax residue. This can be done with a floor squeegee. Afterward, use a wet/dry vac to suck up any leftover residue and help dry the area.


Happy cleaning,

Coach Dave
