Face wax softens when it comes in contact with the warmth of your hands.
Keep tile floors free of face wax that attracts other dirt.Keep tile floors free of face wax that attracts other dirt.
Once it's applied to your face, it becomes solidified again and adheres to unwanted hair on your face. When the wax ends up on your tile floor, however, it becomes a waxy, stuck-on mess that leaves oil residue behind. The process of removing face wax is similar to that of removing candle wax. The wax must be removed carefully to avoid damaging the tiles in the process.

Step 1

Place ice cubes in a plastic zip bag and lay the ice pack on top of the facial wax. Leave the ice pack in place until the wax has become hard. Scrape the hardened facial wax off the tile floor with a plastic scraper.

Step 2

Heat from your clothing iron transfers facial wax from the tile to paper.

Heat a clothing iron to the lowest heat setting. While the on heats up cut a brown paper to fit over the remaining face wax stain. Lay the brown paper over the face wax and press it with the iron; heat from the iron causes the wax to liquefy and transfer to the paper.

Step 3

Wet a clean cloth with water then pour a quarter-sized amount of white vinegar onto the cloth. Wring out the excess moisture. Wipe the tile at the site of the face wax stain to remove wax residue.

Step 4

Rinse the tile by wiping it with a damp cloth. Dry the tile with a dry cloth as you buff it to a shine.
