Regardless of which cracks they are in (butt or elsewhere), just use a towel soaked in dish soap and water and wrap it around your finger and slide across with your nail.

You can also use a q-tip or a soft brush.

For easily accessible areas, just clay bar or you can actually get a wax remover (there are other names for this).

Then just wipe it all off with quick detailer or half water and half rubbing alcohol. Enjoy.

Just let some dawn soak on them, that will get rid of it. If you have a access to a pressure washed that would make things a lot faster. Not a crazy pressure washer but one at a car wash station. It will take all the crap out of those gaps.
