Pet-peeve... wax on textured plastic!

Does anyone else hate seeing wax dried up on textured parts of your ride? Well, I HATE IT WITH A PASSSION. I try really hard to make sure I don't get wax on those parts then weeks later you see wax come out of nowhere in those areas. Any advice on how to remove and avoid this in the near future? I used to tape those parts but I thought that was a bit OCD and figured I'd just take it easy but no matter what it still happens!

Re: Pet-peeve... wax on textured plastic!

try Turtle Wax Ice synthetic wax. it doesn't mark up plastic at all. hell, you can actually use it on the plastic if you want to, it will give it a nice wet look. I've used it on my cars for 2 years now and I'm really happy with it.

and sorry, but I have no idea how to get the residue off either

Re: Pet-peeve... wax on textured plastic!

yea, same here. i was doing my detail last week when i decided to try and get rid of those whitish marks on the textured parts. what i did was i applied a lot of pressure with a microfiber towel and just "wipe" it away. kinda surprised it worked.

someone also suggested using a pink eraser in one of the detailing threads

Vinylex. This shit is retarded.

Degreased and washed the engine bay and worked this into all the plastic and hoses. The shine just lasts and lasts.

I've heard a couple people say things along the lines of that but I'm crazy anal about car care and I can't say I've really had any negative results with it. I have and use just about every Ice product there is and I was especially happy with their wheel cleaner.

Re: Pet-peeve... wax on textured plastic!

I'll have to try this Ice stuff. I currently use Mother's carnuaba wax and black magic for my wheels and tires. Mother's (for me) is pretty good; after a good down-pour, the water still beads up. As for the black magic, it's good for a week but then kinda rubs off after a good rainfall. My only big problem are these wax spots on the plastic. Thanks to everyone for all of your suggestions!
