Pink eraser, peanut butter [seriously] or bug and tar remover. Mothers "Back to Black" works decently.

A 1:2 ratio of Simple Green and a toothbrush work for me!

Careful with the Simple Green, works good but DON'T let it DRY on any surface, it WILL stain.

Since reading shofun's tip a couple months ago I've been using this technique and I'll testify that it's worked every time for me. Since I often have detailer (Meguire's) in my hand touching up the car it's quick and easy to spot the wax artifacts and take them away. I'm not sure if it works for wax left on for long periods, I'm usually hitting my "mistakes" within 2-3 weeks of appying the wax.

Swoop,
Pink eraser? Like the end of a No. 2 pencil or is it something else?

Hi fordfusion22. As several others have told you already, use Meguiar's "Quick Detailer" and an old toothbrush. Some of the other suggestions can damage your plastics, paint, or strip the wax from your paint. The Quick Detailer and toothbrush work perfectly. I ave used that method for years (on a black car, no less) and can swear to it's success.
Good luck with the new car!
