    No, you need a chemical to remove excess wax.

    The old standby is peanut butter...... really. The oils help remove the wax and will cover up some of it too.

    I've had good luck with all purpose cleaners and a small stiff brush but it takes several applications.

    Also try a mild solvent like mineral spirits and a clean rag. Again, may take a few applications.

    If you have wax trapped in cracks and seams, take a cheap 1" paint brush and cut the bristles down as low as you can. You'll end up with a brush with short stiff bristles which you can use to simply brush out the excess wax.

    bmf is absolutely right. Peanut butter and a cut down paint brush works great.

    In the future, try S100 Paste Wax since it doesn't leave white residue and won't haze rubber or plastic trim.
