Ha. Sounds like you need to get rid of the stock trim and upgrade it to leathers!

I wish I could advise with experience, I have only an idea or two. I wonder if 3M wax, tar and bug remover would be worth a try. The stuff smells really strong is the only thing. I would experiment with the wax you have to find a sutable solvent (acetone, alcohol, hot soapy water, hot air, etc.) and use this to make it absorbable to a cloth or some cotton and wisk it up. If you melt it into oblivion with a heat gun, it might just be harmless hidden in the depths of the seats, so no one would care.

I have heard that one technique is to reheat the wax lightly with an iron (and a paper towel between) and the wax will remelt and stick the the paper towel.

As others have said, heat tends to work well for
cleaning wax. I have cleaned wax off leather
with hot water when nothing else worked. For
fabric, maybe a steam cleaning machine?

In all seriousness though, head over to www.autopia.org and do a search for wax removal (or get an account and post). Lots of detailing masters hang out there and I'm sure someone could help you get that crap out of your car :-)

Ditto. I have done it using an old t-shirt as opposed to a paper towel.

-Put the shirt on the wax.
-Heat up an iron
-Run the iron over the shirt. It will soak up the wax.
-Thank God for this technique.
