I used Orange Glo on my hardwood floors a few times and you can see a residue on the floor.  How can I safely remove it?

RE: remove residue from orange glo
I have heard about many OrangeGlo nightmares on hardwood.  Most of the time, the problem is that people are using OrangeGlo on hardwood that is finsihed with polyurethane.  The OrangeGlo does not absorb into the surface, but sits on top creating an oily residue.

I have heard that some people are sucessful removing this with windex or a solution of vinegar and water.  Don't get the floors too wet as they will take in moisture and swell over time.

You might also try Holloway wax remover (though I DO NOT recommend their other products personally), or any other wax remover.
