Heard armor all works.

There are very few personal problems that can't be solved by the proper application of high explosives!

I've never tried it, but I've heard peanut butter.
I think in the past though I've used a product called Back to Black? but its been years since I've done that.

Black to Black is good, or go to a RV store and get the tire black. I have read that the peanut butter works but I think you wouldnt want all the birds and other creatures hanging out on your truck....steve

There you go - best answer so far. Just get you a solo cup or whatever and put some Dawn dishsoap/warm water in it, get your toothbrush and get to work. Should come right off...

Dawn also works wonders for washing a car with right before you apply a fresh coat of wax - it stips the old wax and all the gease/oil/dirt off the paint.

Back to black, peanut butter, tire black, and armor all will all work. But the problem is that they only mask the wax. I still havent found anything to REMOVE it. It will look good for a couple weeks but then it will be right back again, the same as before, when the produck wears off. The toothbrush and soap idea sounds like a good one though, ill have to try that one.
