Clean up static from wave file

I am trying to use Audacity to clean up static on a wave file I have and having a difficult time doing this! Can you help me, or walk me through how to do this?

What sort of “static”? If it’s “distortion” due to recording too loud then it’s probably not fixable.
Perhaps you could upload a short sample (2 or 3 seconds in WAV format) for us to look at. Below the forum composing message box there is an “Upload attachment” tab.
