Re: wax residue

Try Turtle Wax Ice Liquid. I use it on my truck, and it makes the black plastic and rubber pieces look great! Maybe it will take off your residue and also make your trim look good too.

Re: wax residue

Do not use the back to black or any of the maskers, cuz all they do is temp cover up and add to the build up. A good dish soap and a tooth brush works good I prefer Dawn do not dilute small circular motions.
I have also head the peanut butter works realy well.

i used to be a big believer in "back to black" untill the last time i used it.. it really didnt do that good of a job.. i wasnt trying to remove wax just get some color back in my door handles,wiper cowl, and mirror frames.. really didnt do that good of a job and it rained a little later that night and the chit "ran" everywhere

Re: wax residue

Yes, most dish soaps have harsh detergents in them that will remove wax.
