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.

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:doh::doh:

never thought about dish soap will it remove the wax from the paint??....(as i will not be scrubbing the paint but it will wash down it while rinsing)

thanks

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

thanks for the info i don't think i will try the dish soap as there are other cleaners out there i don't wish to strip the paint just clean the plastic
