    Removing Polish/Wax

    As title, what's the best thing to use for removing wax or polish from window rubbers & plastics etc?

    Thanks,

    Hi Pete,

    Depends how much you want to spend on a product.

    I use this stuff now on window rubbers and interior plastics, brings them up like new, pricey but works a treat.

    Thanks for the reply's chaps.

    I don't mind paying for a product if it works well, but if I can use anything cheaper then obviously that is the way to go.

    I have WD40.

    I also have Back to Black.
    Will this work on rubber as well as plastics?

    I've heard someone suggest nut oil or something like that from supermarket.
    £1.50 or so for 500ml.

    Anything else I might be able to try?

    Cheers peeps,

    Pete

    I find the back to black type things are good at keeping the trim black but most won't shift the wax marks.

    For me it's WD40 as I always have some kicking around, but heard the Nut oil or Peanut butter works too! (may get some odd looks though as you spread yer car!).

    Once clean I use Chem Guys New Trim Gel to keep things looking good.
