Lol...starting to think autogeek is bought and paid for to recommend stuff
3 years ago when I had dried wax on trim, they rated backfire the one and only product...just looked now and it's way down on the list...
Anyway I use the all in one BF-450 and works great. It does not mask and hide stiff to make it look black, cleans it to make it like new..I use on tires and any black trim.

Use some isopropyl alcohol cut with distilled water. After use though you need to use a product like carpro PERL to replenish the oils in the plastic

Has anyone tried Goo Gone or Goof Off? I will when I get home but just thought of that stuff, I use it for everything else it seems.

Well I tried Magic Eraser and so far it works. I did not use any treatment afterwards either as I wanted to see if something in the eraser was covering up the wax. Been four days so far and the trim looks like new, not shiny either, looks like the rest of the trim. When I used Mothers Preserves Protect, it would only last a few days.

I have a white eraser, shaped like a pen, as it wears out you click out some more. It works instantly to remove wax from the plastic trim on my XL.
