  • Getting rid of polish and wax residue

    Since polishing and waxing my car for PVS, I've now got dried on white residue on some of the plastics; like the wheel arch trims for example.

    Is there an easy way to get rid of it? Need to wash the car tomorrow for Billing this weekend so want to get rid of these marks while I'm at it.

    Cheers.

    Getting rid of polish and wax residue

    Either try some quick detailer or apply polish/wax (which ever it is) to the area that has residue on and buff off.

    Sometimes, if you have left wax or polish on too long, it's a ball ache to remove. But if you apply more on the top of it, it makes it a lot easier to buff off taking the residue with it.

      It's not on the paint. It's dried on to the plastics where I've accidentally got a bit on when applying it to the paint.

      You know how the Corsa pastics are dimply, well it's dried in the gaps.

        I still suggest some quick detailer or if you haven't got any, try some warm water on a soft cloth and scrub away.

          Might have to go at it with a toothbrush to get in the gaps properly.

                      a bit of traffic film remover or all purpose cleaner (valet pro g101) on a microfibre will clean up any excess polish/wax
