peanut butter isn't just for sandwiches anymore

so it's 2:30 am. pretty much just sat here bored on duty so i brought my car in to give it a detailing or two. i love how clean my car looks but these stupid white marks on the plastic on the outside of the vehicle are annoying the hell out of me. so i search online to see what i can do to fix it. and low and behold, peanut butter is the answer to all my solutions. not sure how many people actually know about this but it is new to me, so i thought i'd share with all of you who don't.

step 1: observe ugly marks and wash with soap and water



step 2: smear your peanut butter on (i dont suggest chunky as all the nuts get everywhere)



step 3: wipe off (lick if you want) the peanut butter with a rag of some sort and admire your work



these spots were from the times i waxed the car. there were more and they all came off. funny how that works...lol

I wonder if peanut oil would work with less stickiness?

I have a feeling that Mother's "Back to Black" works on the same principle, utilizing the oils to mask the plastic. Like Back to Black, I wonder if it will wear off after 2-4 weeks.
