Removing wax from trim?
 
Have done alot of research on this through google. Anyone have any experience or a sure fire way to remove white wax from trim that has been sitting there a while. A friend of mine at work has a major issue with it. Thanks

I have the same problem. I hide it very well with 303 Aerospace.

So that product you recommend only hides it? Doesn't actually remove it? How long does it last. Hers is pretty bad.

Yeah, hides it for about 3-4 weeks. Tried many things but couldn't get it out.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser! I kid you not, this removed the wax on my WK2. Be careful not to touch the paint with it.

Have detailed cars for 5 years. A very good product called TM-1000 works well. Also, at a class taught by Meguiars brand detailers they suggested peanut butter. The oils from the peanut butter draw the wax out.

Seconded, comes right off, without a lot of pressure. It can touch the paint, but I wouldn't rub the hell out of it...

easy, dish soap and water. then re-wax and paint areas that the soap touched and removed wax. No need for fancy products.

In the future use turtle wax ice, great synthetic polish/sealer, not a wax, and can be used on trim etc. Been using on all my vehicles since 2008 including my 911. No, I am not affiliated.

Basically fine sand paper. It takes it off along with a layer of the trim.

almost the same as wax remover you can buy in a can at auto shop/body shop supply store, works but not as safe as dish soap. I am not for sure, but I think in the past, using mineral spirits/wax remover has lightened trim on my vehicles, however they were old, 30 year old cars... so hard to tell what caused what.

I haven't personally tried this, but I've used many other Griot's Garage products with good success.

Magic eraser!

Don't use Goof Off, it will turn trim white.
