Getting wax out of cracks?

Had my car waxed and buffed, but there's still some wax in between the cracks where panels meet up. Any suggestion on a soft brush to clean it up? Is a "soft" bristle (as opposed to medium) toothbrush too harsh? It's a new car, so I don't want to scratch it.

I've used Q-tips to remove wax from hard to reach areas such as in-between letters of a logo.

Soft used tooth brush and or a paint brush works great.

A soft tooth brush will work great and won't damage any exterior automotive finishes.

I save my old ones when they're worn out from tooth duty to use on the cars.

Thank you for the title. It gave me a chuckle and a pause.

"wax outta cracks" roflol...

Reminds me that it's time to give my vehicle it's once a year wash.

+1 for a soft brush. Auto parts stores or detailing shops sell ones for that purpose that look like a big toothbrush. I've used one of these for years to get at the little crevices in side strips, tail lights, weatherstripping etc.

Another suggestion I just saw is to get a paint brush and cut the bristles down to about half length to stiffen them.
