Peanut butter and/or a big pink school eraser will work fine.

Very simple...

goto WalMart or any office supply store and spend 99 cents on an "ArtGum" eraser. It is very soft and will remove the wax off your plastic trim without scratching it.

Auto tranny fluid might work. Just be careful to not get it on the paint
