This is a bugger of a job. The only success I have had is with white
spirit* and a toothbrush. Thoroughly wet the wax mark and then scrub away.
Sponge with soapy water when you think you've done enough. You look a
complete plonker doing it. Neighbours will laugh. I no longer bother - the
mud round where I live soon covers it up.
* General woodworkers' rule for all normal finishes (i.e. not Xylene-based
stuff like Hammerite): If white spirit won't remove it, meths will. Seems
to work for car finishes, too.
