    Turtle wax Ice works great for that. It will clean the white wax from any black surface plus it adds a layer of protection. Also if a little gets on the paint just buff it since it is for that anyway.

    Sponge with soap and water. Use Dawn dish detergent for the soap.

    I have never tried it personally, but I have been told that you can use ATF for that. A guy at a dealershop told me that. The down side is that you need to remove the plastic so it would definately be more of a pain especially if there is something on the market that will remove it.

    Has anyone else heard this? I never thought of ATF as a cleaning agent, but thought I would bring it up to see if I am the only one who has heard this.:neutral:

    I have used peanut butter (creamy) and distilled white vinegar, both work.

    Get Klass All In One wax to get out white areas on black trim from crappy waxes.

    KAIO is one of the best waxes available. $20 a 16 oz bottle which will last 4-5 years with 3-4 waxes a year. The product is the longest lasting wax on the market and protects 6+ months especially when combined with Klasse Sealant Glaze. It is great on any and all materials from paint of course to black plastic which it will have shining beautifully and protect the material.

    You can find info here, this is a great website

    All you need is some all purpose cleaner i perfer adams apc and a small brush spary it on and brush it and you should be good to go. If you get on paint make sure to wash it off and not let it set on the paint for long.
