Default Hairspray on floors

My daughter uses hairspray, and over time, it builds up on the floor. What is a good cleaner to remove it? I've read borax and hot water or baking soda and water. Do they work?

I would try rubbing alcohol or finger nail polish remover.

I don't know Old Dawg. That hairspray is water soluble. I sure wouldn't recommend acetone where a little soap, water and vinegar would work just fine.

It is just a guess. I personally don't use that stuff myself.

Well, I did get ambushed ONCE, but I was loaded on Oxy's the day after I got home from the hospital after one of my knee replacements.
