So I waxed my car with Meguiar's Cleaner Wax, & it came out real nice, but as careful as I was, I got a small amount on the side moldings, & the long moldings under the doors. Alcohol took it right off for about 10 seconds. So what product can permanently remove the wax from the moldings w/o damaging them? GARY

I've used a good, soft detail brush and water with great success.

I've used vinegar as well. What also works wonders is believe it or not, a mr. clean magic eraser and some "purple power" degreaser.

Use a soft bristle toothbrush works great for small tight areas
