    Fiance thought it was a good idea to let some guy "buff" some scratches on her car. He left a lot of wax on the car and told her to wipe it off. Well fast forward 4 days and sub freezing weather.

    What's the safest way to remove this wax? It is still below freezing where I am at.

    Any help appreciated. :bigthumb:

    I would start by using blood from the guys head.

    is it covered in shit. If so wash the car then try to wipe it off

    other wise wipe it off its only been 4 days if that doesnt work there are 100s of things that will take it off.

    Wax and grease remover

    a polish

    peanut butter

    lighter fluid

    goo gone

    Warm damp microfiber towel (assuming the paint is clean) followed by a dry microfiber towel.

    :werd: you can also mist a little rubbing alcohol on there too if you'd like. It won't hurt a thing and will help get wax off.

    And run the car with the heater on full blast. This will help to heat up the exterior panels.
