Goo Gone works great but i'm guessing you don't want all your wax to come off so i would go with 1slosix on this one.

I've got a lot in my badge and it looks like it has been in there for years. I think I might try one of those pump sprayers that was mentioned in another thread to clean the engine. Or should I just buy a new badge.

Now on those, I've used a tooth brush, since it wasn't on the paint. I made a soapy solution with Dawn. I was afraid to try this on the edges where it meets the paint.
