Default removing wax from cracks and crevices

I need a good trick to get the dried wax out of the crevice between my rear bumper and quarterpanels.

Finger nail? I push the edges of a terry cloth into there as well.

Don't wax in there next time either.

Very fine tooth brush works awesome. Just use your old one and buy you teeth a new one. This works well on rims also. 101 uses...

Try using those Eagle One Wax Applicators..... I used the last time on my rides... they worked AWESOME... much easier then using a cloth...
