Remove wax polish from black trim.

Post by john002 » Sat Mar 26, 2016 8:05 am

Whats the best way to remove wax polish from black trim.

I have tried back to black spray , this has not cleaned it off.

Autoglym bumper and trim gel its what I use and its good stuff it doesn't contain any colour dyes just apply it to your rubber/vinyl/plastic trim and it restores them back to their original colour also it's water proof and can be put on door seals in the winter to stop them sticking when it freeze's

If you mean like Autoglym resin polish has left white streaks on the black trim then good luck!. I tried for 2 years to get it off completely, and you need something that dissolves carnauba wax and basically thats turpentine, or turps substitute. (Test a small area first as they say)
Then apply the above gels to merge the remnants.

Smooth peanut butter ! I'm an old timer and used it for years, water just beads off.
