Back to black usually does a good job cleaning that up for me

gas will fade the plastic pretty fast. Never tired the peanut butter. Trim restorer will do that job.

Experience on this end...

*Gas, doesn't damage the plastic, doesn't remove the wax.

*Mothers Back to Black, hides the wax for awhile. If you like temporary fixes, this has your name on it.

*Wax remover (see your autobody material supplier for this), the stuff you use as step #1 when you are prepping a car for a paint job, temporary and marginal solution.

*Lacquer thinner (always try on an inconspicuous spot first), temporary and marginal solution.

^^^ Following up on the last two items with Back to Black provides a longer lasting but not a permanent solution, but is the best I've found so far.



Peanut butter, good one, sure would like to know if it is a lasting solution or if the oil in it results in a temporary fix.

I just keep my plastics oiled up with back to black so I don't see it as temporary lol

But keep that crap off your paint. It'll make little swirls
