    Washing citrus with very warm water will remove the wax as well as help open the "pores" of the citrus rind helping with greater extraction. Also using a super sharp peeler can make the removal of the rind sans pith much easier. Rösle makes and excellent peeler, all stainless steel and can be resharpened.

    They do usually put a vegetable wax over citrus, maybe a quick hand wash would work. dish soap might add a weird flavor.

    The pith is super bitter so try and use only the peel.

    Wash with dish soap first?

    Is it okay to also include the pith, or should it just be the peel?
