Can anyone recommend a good cleaner for the black material areas on the bumper and door strips. Wax gets on them, no matter how careful you are, and I cannot remove it. Thanks, ZZ

Peanut Butter. The peanut oil in the Peanut Butter takes it right off. Spread some on the area you want to clean. Let is sit approx. 10 min. wipe off clean and the wax will be gone.

Good luck.

No jelly required unless you want some. All kidding aside, it really works!

O-kay, thanks. I will give it a try, once the weather permits. I am afraid the peanut butter would freeze if I tried it now. Would become peanut brittle

I just bought a pack of bamboo skewers and use those to chase wax out of corners. Works pretty well.

I tried peanut oil today in place of the peanut butter. Less messy and did a great job.
