How do I remove car wax from plastic parts?

How do I remove dried car wax? My dad came over to help me fix my car paint. After we finished working on the paintwork, we applied wax to the surface. I just went to check if the wax had dried yet, and I noticed there were some dried white stains.

Don’t worry; removing dried wax might seem difficult, but there are ways you can remove car wax from the plastic parts of your vehicle. Using a car wax remover is the best way to get the job done.
To learn how to properly use the wax remover, follow these steps:
  • Purchase a car wax remover specifically designed for removing wax and dirt. Make sure it is not oil-based.
  • Spray the product on the target area. Work one section at a time. If you accidentally wipe the product onto the car paint, simply wipe it off with cleanser and a wet cloth.
  • Take an old toothbrush and scrub the solution back and forth to lift the wax from the plastic surface.
  • Use a dry, clean microfiber cloth to wipe off the product from the plastic surface. Be firm when you wipe and buff the surface.
There you go; your vehicle should be free of stains!
