use a stiff bristle tooth brush and warm soapy water, a bit prepsol (wax and grease remover) rubbed over it with a cloth before hand would soften it.

Dawn blue dishwashing liquid is an excellent wax stripper.

A few sprays of Simple Green Automotive and a soft toothbrush works great at removing wax buildup.
