I made a mistake, I let my wife help wax the car and despite me telling her to absolutely not get any wax on the black plastic trim, well...... Here we are.
How do I get it off? I've scrubbed it, chemical guys has some stuff specifically for this, but it doesn't work.
It really looks horrible and she got it all over. smh

FYI if you tried to attach a photo it does not look like it came through.

couple of things to try. 1) A regular pencil eraser 2) A Toothbrush with some APC or concentrated dish soap. If you don't have a spare toothbrush, use the wife's.
If she didn't have false teeth ,I would use her toothbrush,lol

Maybe try a wet magic eraser? I’ve read somewhere that works
Only if the trim is the hard 'rough type' of trim. The smooth black trim on some cars will get ruined with a Magic Eraser. With wax being water resistant a good dish soap that degreases is needed to break down the wax properties. But you are indeed correct, it will work on the rough textured type of trim.

Ok, some dishwashing liquid and a little brush got most of it off. I couldn't believe it after scrubbing it with microfiber cloths and stuff that was supposed to take it off not working, a little dishsoap took most of it off.
