    Hi Dai,

    Oh how I remember the days of cleaning Mop & Glo off my linoleum floors! It made me want to never use a wax on my floor again. It appears that Orange Glo is similar for hardwood floors. Over time it can build up and take away the beauty your hardwood floors. :( You'll need hot soapy water and ammonia. (Do not mix bleach with the ammonia.) Click below to read about the method. Wishing you the best.

    I also use ammonia and water and scrubbed like crazy. Orange glo is not made for certain hardwood types..I learned that the hard way also. :(

    as the above folks have said, this is a harsh chemical and I further suggest that you try this out in an inconspicuous corner to start with. IF this does not finish like you want, at least your damage will be limited until you try another remedy.

    1. Mop floor, going with the grain. If your floors are polyurethaned, dampen a mop with water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid. ...
    2. Buff floor with a cloth.

    We tried various recommendations including vinegar, mineral spirits. What worked best was Rejuvenate Cleaner and scraping with a good quality scraper. I could do about 5 sq ft per hour but is physically draining.
