    I am not sure if anyone has posted this, but I have a great way to removing wax from black trim. Try using a mars eraser. I have used this numerous times to remove wax from the black plastic trim on my truck. Works great!!!!

    I've used the peanut-butter trick in the past, and it has worked well.

    The thing with the peanut butter trick is that you really aren't getting rid of the wax, but just covering it up with the oil in the peanut butter. The peanut oil wets the wax making it blend in with the trim. The mars eraser actually rubs the wax off of the trim.
