I have mangaed to get wax on to a bunch of the plastic parts of my car and they now have white marks that haven't come off from just washing. Any tips??
Seriously, Peanut Butter works great at removing wax from plastic trim and making it look black and new.
Here's how I do it: with a small cloth, rub a dab of the stuff in to the plastic. Use another cloth to wipe off as much of the excess as possible. Then, I proceed with my regular wash (ie do this right before the next time you wash your car.)
Trust me, it works wonders. Once you try it, you'll have non-believers thinking you are crazy when you suggest it. But soon you will have them using it too. It is certainly one of the oddest secrets in the detailing world.
Spray some degreaser on a terrycloth towel, and carefully rub over the waxed plastic.
Be careful not to get it on your paint, or else it will take the wax off your paint.
(Degreaser itself is not harmful to paint, it just takes the wax off.)
PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM DEGREASER!!!!!!!!!!!
it will damage the plastic , degreaser is made to work on grease not wax.
plastic is very sesitive , the oil in the peanut butter helps to keep the plastic from drying out, if u use armoural on the plastic the sillicon, in the armoural will dry out the plastic and it will turn grey.
try to put a light coat of vegetable oil on ur tires on the inside , and see how long that lasts, it will last a long time.
if anyone is going bonkers about there trim turning grey , go down to a recommended body shop and ask them about a "texture coat" on ur trim. u can only do so much with crap.....
