Yep I hate PineSol too. Great you have a friend, you may only need a gallon. Typically it comes in 5gl buckets.

We used the low oder stripper in occupied building as the regular stripper would make the customers sick.

Best tip treat the project like it's painting not floor cleaning. Spend a few$ and get a good mop head. Tarp of tape off adding carpet or wood work. work in realistic sections.

Sweep before you start, turn off forces air vent to that area. Use a scrub brush on a broom handle is you don't rent a scrubber machine. Use a wet vac to suck up the stripper/old wax. Rinse after stripping. While floor drys clean wet vac.

Sweep the dry floor before you wax.

You want a very dust free area until after the was drys. Any air born dust will stick to you floors finish.
