After cleaner/waxing the entire car I now have a white residue on some of the dull black plactic material. What's the best cleaner to safely remove this wax?

Some old time detailers, at least a few I talked with at various car shows, used to use pure peanut oil to clean their door panels and dashes.

There's another post somewhere on the site.
Do a search for peanut oil.

NAPA sells a product to clean that off. It is in their MAC products, I'm sorry that I don't have the part number.

Mr. Clean magic erasers take it off and leave it looking nice. However you cant be too rough with them, or the eraser will break (its like ... foam) and you will end up spreading a new kind of white residue on the seals and such.

I also told windex does the trick, but that may or may not damage the seals.

It might take a little rubbin... but if you got some of that Interior dash shin stuff... like armoral... or Miguiers or something like that... if you put some on a rag and rub on it... it will go away.. and make it shinny in one step... just takes a small about of elbow power....
