Removal of wax from plastic parts?

Does anyone know what to use to remove wax from parts like the black plastic trim on the car, or mudflaps for example? I picked up my E90 330 on Thursday and the dealer waxed the car kind of quickly in an effort to get me the car on my lunch hour.

Thanks.

Haha B.A. Baracus / Mr. T rules. Good thing about the E90 is you don't have those pesky door moldings to deal with. That was such a nightmare for E46 owners, to keep those moldings wax free all the time.

So true.
Especially also if you added your own plastic door-guards & fender guards.
One slip with the wax pad and.....
