Prevention is always the best medicine, but if you do have wax contamination on plastic trim you just need to use something that cuts/removes wax.

I prefer All Purpose Cleaner and a combo of microfiber towels and a soft toothbrush (for deeper textures)

You can also use original (blue) dawn dish soap or simple green at full strength.

Regardless of what you use, its absolutely imperative you dress the area with a quality water based trim dressing to restore the even color and protection to the surface as the degreasers will have dried it out significantly.

Pencil erasers work pretty well.
