Wax On-Wax Off

How does everyone remove the wax residue from the black plastic parts on our trucks, ie. doorhandles, bed caps, etc.?

Thanks in advance........

I have used the armor dash wipes and they actually work good on the exterior for that

Im not a fan of armor all
after you use it, the plastic looks greasy and a few days later it looks dried out.

How about just using a wash cloth and warm soapy water

they have wax and grease removers you apply before using primer and touch up paint. I bet that would work really well. You can find a solution at an autobody supply store for sure.

I used Adam's polishes detail spray. It's the first stuff I've ever used that completely removes it.

I use Eagle one wet tire shine on my trucks plastic parts, even the dash too, lol. The only other advice I have is don't get it on the plastic when you wax.
