    Default Any ideas how to get white polish marks off plastic trim?

    Howdy!

    Well as the title asks, has anyone any ideas how to get white polish marks off plastic trim? I've won the job of cleaning the missuses car this weekend and it has loads of white polish marks on the black bumper trim bits.

    Help / ideas v.welcome!

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    AutoGlym bumper care for one will do it, as will the equivalent product in the Meguiars range (forgotten what it's called).

    Have tried this before as i've got some in the garage, but after a wee bit the white marks soon show through. Mind you, i saw on here someone mention peanut butter - but thought it was a wind up!! I'll break out the veg / olive oil and see what happens - i'll also experiment with some other bits and see what happens - after all, it's only the wifes KA!!

    Cheers,
    Neil.
