Mother's back to black seems to be the favorite, but it can be hard to find. I've still never seen a store that carries it. Supposedly the Armor All Cleaning wipes work, but the haze always came back on me. Peanut butter scrubbed with a tooth bruch can work too

I have had good luck with the following methods. Toothbrush, hard bristles. Vaseline..I mean on the trim laugh WD40 on a small soft cloth. Silicone spay lube. Actually any oily liquid that can penetrate the wax and rubber or plastic, then just wipe away.

I found Mother's Back to Black at my local Auto Zone. I also heard peanut butter works.

I get/have gotten wax off trim with such things as black shoe polish (old jeep), baking soda (add water to form paste), and in most cases a mix of dish detergent thinned w/water (why you shouldn't wash your vehicles with this). The above tips also involve the utmost care not to get them on the paint as doing so will remove the wax from this also. Black Chrome is what I use now. It's similar to Back to Black and easier to find.

Dawn Dishwashing Soap takes wax off your paint. It is used before you do a pro wax job. Maybe it would work on the cladding. If your wife sees you pick up the Dawn she might think you are going to do the dishes. laugh

does peanut butter really work? Or does it just mask the white until you have to reapply more? like the back to black

The low fat peanut butter has less oil (less fat) in it. I doubt it would work as well.

dave and xtoy - don't put your X on a diet

Wouldn't it be easier (albeit less tasty) just to buy a bottle of peanut oil?
