Removing Wax from Plastic
 
I waxed my car a few weeks ago and still have some wax residue on the side skirts of my car. I was wondering would do a good job of removing the wax?

a pink eraser works very well.

Bug and tar remover or WD-40 work pretty well. Some swear by peanut butter.

Moved to "Auto Washing & Detailing"
This topic has been covered a few times. Take a look down through this section of the forum. I've had had good luck with a plain old tooth brush.

Yes they do, I keep them with the other detailing supplies.

Peanut butter will absolutely get it gone. Apply, wait a while, at least a few minutes, then wipe off. It won't reappear in a week or so like some other solutions.

I've used an eraser before. Never heard of the peanut butter method,but I will have to try it.

I tried 70% alcohol and it came out pretty good.
