Wax on engine

Does anyone have a good way of removing dried wax from the wrinkle paint finish on the engine?

I am throwing spit balls here but perhaps WD40? Between WD40 and duct tape, you don't need much more in the case of emergencies. They even work for birth control!

It may depend on whether it is regular or synthetic wax also.

BlackFire wax remover is worth a shot. Always try in a hidden spot first

You beat me to it. Also a tooth brush in those hard to reach areas.

Just spray some brake clean on an old rag and you can wipe the wax right off. Won't harm the wrinkle finish.
