How to get dried wax off??

So a few days ago I went to a local waterpark car wash, and had them wax as well. well after I got home I realized I had some white swirls all over the rocker panels of my truck...I've since then washed the truck but they still are there. It's really pissing me off.

What is the best way to remove this?

Take it back to the car wash place and have them take care of it.

Ha yeah I was about to go back to the car wash place and demand them do it but I found out the pencil eraser worked well enough. Plus it got some dried wax off of my fenders from the last time I waxed it.

So it's all good now!

Erasers take the wax off any bare plastic trim. It works great!

The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser takes wax off of trim, but DON"T hit your paint with it!
