Default Fastback Canopy release wax cleaning?

The forward end of the canopy is used as a mold to create a flange to which it will be bonded. Obviously, we had to put a fair bit of release wax on the canopy to ensure it wouldn't be captured by the floxed glass mixture. That all worked fine, but now I need to remove the release wax from the canopy itself. I'm being VERY careful, and using mineral spirits and isopropyl alcohol and Clear View, but the wax is resisting. No damage done to the canopy yet, but the wax remains. Suggestions?

Try dawn soap and water using micro fiber cloth. If need something stronger use kerosene or Coleman fuel, then follow up with soapy water.
