Here, at work, we have tried a lot of things; we spent anywhere from a couple of bucks to $20 with various results. The best (and most economical way) is to get a pretty hard paint brush (make sure it is hardened) and when you get those white streaks on those vinyl moldings, you just rub those spots pretty hard. You will notice that 80% to 90% of the white wax residue is gone, by now. Then take some kind of bumper or vinyl dressing and apply it with a rag. The best dressing we found was from STONER. Your moldings/bumpers will look as good as new, you will not spend a fortune and it only takes a couple of minutes with minimal effort!<P>Yannis<P><P>

Easier still, get a little bit of peanut butter, put it in the microwave for 60 seconds. get a tooth brush, dip a little PB, and brush to whatever plastic/rubber you need to remove wax from.<P>They'll be gone in 2 seconds, its that easy<P>
