How do I clean wax off of anodized aluminum?

Wax Removal from Anodized Aluminum

If you're doing your kitchen cleaning and have noticed melted wax on aluminum, gently scrape with a spatula or straight edge such as a credit card. After you have removed as much wax as possible, clean the area with whitewall tire cleaner or aluminum jelly. Rub in with a soft damp rag, rinse rag and wipe again.

Anodized aluminum is very delicate. Instead of scraping the wax off just spray a little WD-40 on it, let it sit for a few minutes then rub it off with a paper towel. Repeat if necessary. Don't take the chance on scraping the anodizing off.
