    Jet Ski Detailing Question

    Anyone know what gets wax residue off of the black plastic pieces on your jet ski? (You know that chalky look?) Simple Green, Armor All, etc. don't work.....

    I use glass cleaner by dabbing it on thick then dabbing armor all after that. Back to black works well too for dabbing after glass cleaner.

    The back to black did a pretty good job. It got most of the wax residue off but there's still some left. Any other ideas?

    Do you think it's okay to use mineral spirits and then use back to black to restore the color? (Although it seems to me that back to black doesnt actually make it 'blacker' because it says it can be used on any color?!?)

    Don't use mineral. Try the glass cleaner idea. Get as much on there as possible using medium pressure.

    Did you try Car wash soap& water and a stiff brush. Ron

    yeah. No cleaning agents worked in getting wax residue of the black plastic under the rxp seat.

    Back to black worked for the most part. there was some that had been buffed into the plastic that did not come out as easy.. but that was it. I think weve got it figured out.
