I got wax on plastic moulding, now what.

Hello, I was waxing my 01 sport with turtle wax paste with some help from my daughter. The next day i noticed she got wax on some of the plastic trim and now i don't know how to get it off. It seems like when it gets on there, it never comes off. Help, any ideas.

Armor-All just covers it up for a day. Toothbrush and Oxy Clean sounds like its sneeky enough to work.

peanut Butter works at removing wax stains. I have never tried oxy clean.
Be sure to apply a protector to the trim after.

Yes PB works. You can also get this stuff called "back to black" It restores the color of black plastic parts.

Armor-dillo makes a product for faded cladding that works really well

You are exactly right! Problem is that I dont have enough money. But Monotone does in fact make the Explorers look that much better.

You guys should really try Adams Polishes. You can get it on your plastic and not worry about it. It's a little more expensive then Meguiars etc. but once you use it, you'll never go back. I know I haven't.
