Tips For Removing Wax Residue From Black Plastic / Rubber Trim?
Anyone have any tips for removing that un-godly white wax residue from the black plastic trim on my Sea-doo? I have it on my sponsons, and the corner bumpers.
I have read on the net about people using Peanut Butter (not sure if just peanut oil will work) and some product called Ditz-O DX440 by PPG but I can't find that stuff in Canada. I can find peanut butter, no problem!
Background...I have tried Mother's Back to Black and Meguiar'sTrim Detailer, both seem to work but after a couple of rides it's back to white gunk (I guess these products just mask the white wax and wash off with the water).

You can try "Wax remover" with a toothbrush. You might have to go to an automotive paint store to buy the wax remover, I use it before painting to help prep the surfaces.

Try dish detergent. It depends on the plastic as to how porous it is, but dish soap (I use Dawn) actually strips wax off cars (its essentially a degreaser). It will dry out some plastics and rubbers if used over and over so I don't reccomend using it on your stuff over and over, but for a spot treatment it's probably worth a try.

any all purpose cleaner that cuts grease should work. A toothbrush is key for working it out of the grain. Use very a tight circular motion and it will ensure that you get out all of the reside. Works on car, too
