cleaning up some old frames in my shop, which has a cement floor, and the floor around the cleaning area became very slippery because of the wax dust and particles. The slipperiness is now persistent, and I'm wondering what I can use to wash the newly waxed floor to get the wax off?

anybody ever have this issue? I was thinking maybe mopping it with a grease cleaner or something.

I think I have seen some people mention a cleaner called purple power.

My wife makes soap, and I have always wondered if a lye solution would break the wax down, essentially turning it into soap. Of course, the lye solution could have adverse effects on the concrete, I suppose.

Mineral spirits is a good cleaner of wax, I'd think. Lacquer or denatured alcohol would be better, but a bit more costly. Less oily after cleanup though. Mabye better if the 2 used prior to painting and addition of ground lava stone to paint.
