    Default Tip For Removing...

    the white, hardened wax in tough to reach areas?

    I use an eraser for getting rid of the stuff from the plastics, etc. but I'm having trouble with places like the sides of the roof gutter covers.

    As it's a black car, it's driving me crackers, anyone have any advice?

    The jet wash is always good at removing this from hard to reach areas, but not to much though, as it does mark the paint with prolonged close proximity spraying.

    I tried cotton buds but found they were still too big, in the end I tried cocktail sticks and found they were just the job.

    My "kit" is getting more bizarre as it grows.

    I use a nice soft toothbrush for such jobs.
