If you goto meijers there is a product called "bug, tar, wax remover" its basically a prep solvent, spray that sheeiit on the areas of wax, tar, bug stuff, or any other adhesives, let it sit for between 30 seconds to a minute or two (saturate the area with the stuff dont worry) and then wipe it off with a microfiber. Solvent will remove any kind of wax or adhesive. On details I've adopted a new rule of using solvent on the entire car (any panel I will wheel) and on the lower kick panels to remove road tar, that way, im only polishing fresh clearcoat and not polishing any old wax in. Oxidation use clay, and follow clay up with some compound then polishing to a glaze then wax. Only use compound where absolutely needed though because it sands off clearcoat essentially and make sure to use the electric polisher on low speeds with it, and avoid getting it hot.
On another note: use spray wax to remove stuck on wax durring the actual waxing process, it has mild cleaning agents in it and it will remove wax. (meguiars quick detail spray is what i prefer.)
