What's is the best way to get wax off the plastic molding like on the bumpers other then not get it on there in the first place?

I believe you remove it with Windex. And if you are really anal about not getting it on there and having to remove it, you could just put some masking tape on it.

Get yourself some Mr Clean Magic Erasers. Just wet one with some water, wring out the excess water and rub. This stuff Works great, and leaves no residue, and won't hurt your plastic trim.

Masking tape can leave a gum residue.
If you're going to tape, try some painters tape-at Home Depot, etc. Won't leave any residue and comes right off. There are different types-some being more sticky than others. If you're putting it on rubber or plastic, get the sticky kind. It still will come right off w/o leaving a gummy residue.
