Cleaning Clear bra

I have a clear bra covering the full front end of my car. I was waxing my car today and some got stuck the edge of the clear bra next to the kidney grills...

Anybody have any idea how to clean that edge of wax off without scratching the paint next to it or lifting off any of the clear bra?

Thanks!

If it is Carnauba, you may be able to melt it with a heat gun if you can heat the surface to 82 degrees celsius. Boiling water would have similar effect.

However I am not sure of the heat tolerance of the clearbra.

Just use a soft toothbrush along the edge when the wax has fully dried.

Unfortunately I don't have a heat gun and don't want to go buy one just for this. The toothbrush is a great idea - ill try that!

Thanks guys

A good hairdryer is comparable to a heat gun.
