Tommate tiles

Hi, I'm looking for a bit of help! Does anyone know how to remove a huge build up of red floor wax on old tommate tiles. I'd say they were just waxed over and over. I've tried starwax decapage and bleach but nothing seems to work. I'd be grateful if anyone has any ideas or if they dewaxed old tiles themselves. Going home at the weekend so if there was a product available in Ireland I could bring it out next time.
Thanks in advance

Hi I would suggest a test area, out of the way and use the stripper on a low setting.Experiment with different kinds of scraper.You don't want to cook it just loosen it up.

I have just read that coca cola dissolves grease. Wonder if it would work on the tiles. Nothing tried nothing gained. Again a small out of the way test area. Coca Cola is very cheap in Spain!
