Default What will remove white wax residue?

On my black plastic front airdam below the front bumper, the guy that owned the car before me has left some white wax residue there.

It drives me nuts!

How do ya get that stuff off????

Ive tried Dawn and water, paint thinner and laquer thinner.

No dice.

Any suggestions?

As long as it is plastic try Klasse AIO. I have had great results with this on plastic.

ICE will cover it up but not remove it completely.

Peanut butter will work. It sounds crazy but the oils do remove the white redidue. Good luck

I know it sounds nuts but I agree with the Pbutter treatment. Apply a liberal coating to soften it up (in the shade). Leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Clean it off with Simple Green and a light brush. Good luck

Default Another p-nut butter story

AHHHH p-nut butter, the universal solvent. In the breakroom where I worked someone tried to use liquid nails to attach a plastic sign to the ceramic tile over the sink. It didn't hold the sign at all, but stuck really well to the ceramic. The assistant manager brought in a small jar of PB, smeared it on, and everyone thought he was nuts. It took 2-3 applications but it did remove the liquid nails.

Strange but true, don't know why it works, it's a handy thing for yer bag of tricks.
