i did a very stupid thing. I left my board in my car upside down in the early morning but later on in the day it got hot and all the wax dripped on the back seat. Now it looks like a bunch of seagal crap.

does anyone have any good suggestions on how to remove it?

orange off. I did that too. Made the bad mistake of leaving a board my new car for 25 minutes in florida heat. Orange off that you cxan buy in any hardware store did the trick.

But why would you even want to remove it? Wax in the car is standard-issue for any surfer. I'm surprised they didn't make it a factory option on the Roxy Edition Toyota Echo.


If you must remove it, there are all kinds of variations on this product, available at any home store, Target, etc. Stuff worked great on our carpet. Not sure how well it'll work after the wax has had time to set into the color of your upholstery, but worth a try.

Brown paper bag and an Iron or kitchen absorbant paper. Put the bag or paper on the wax, Rub the iron over the top and Voila the wax should melt and get absorbed by the paper!
