After waxing how do you clean the white paste wax haze of plastic trim such as tailgate handle area or around rearview mirror trim? Tried alcohol with toothbrush with little results. Thanks for any help.

Not get it on to begin with... It is a PITA to clean. Try some back to black...

As Zach said, it's a PITA to clean. After getting it on the plastic on my last truck, I vowed to be prepared with my Frontier and bought some of this stuff.

Dried-On Wax Remover - Restoration - Car Maintenance - Griot's Garage

Fortunately, I haven't had to try it yet (probably not waxing my truck enough) so I can't vouch for how well it works. It's the only product I've seen that claims to clean wax off plastic so that's why I bought it.

I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It worked a little.

Detailer Here, Agreed It Is A PITA To Clean. I Use A Rag With Wheel Acid And A Typical Plastic Bristle Interior Brush, Making Sure The Wheel Acid Doesn't Run Onto The Paint. For Future Reference, Wax Your Truck Panel by Panel. If You Get Paste Wax On Plastic Trim And Wipe It Before It Dries And You Wont Have This Problem.

Use EagleOne Nano wax and it won't matter if you get some on your trim.

I've always had luck with using tire dressing on the trim to get off dried wax.

This will sound wierd, but try peanut butter. Just rub it over the dried on wax on the black trim then wash it off. It dissolves the wax completely and no risk of hurting the surrounding paint.
