How do you remove car wax off plastic surfaces?

I live in a rainy city, and I know my vehicle paint can be damaged from hard water spots. To protect the paint, I waxed my car, but I accidentally got some of the wax on the plastic trim. How can I remove car wax off the plastic surfaces of my car?

Rubbing alcohol may be used to treat and disinfect insect bites, but this inexpensive two-dollar bottle can also be used to remove car wax from the plastic surfaces of your vehicle as well!
To remove the white wax stains from the plastic parts of your car, you will need the following supplies:
  • Spray bottle
  • A bottle of rubbing alcohol
  • Water
  • Hose
  • Clean microfiber cloth
Once you have the materials gathered, do the following to clean the wax from your car’s plastic parts:
  • Create a 50/50 mixture of rubbing alcohol and water in the spray bottle.
  • Spray the mixture on the target areas.
  • Let the solution rest for one minute.
  • Take the hose and rinse your car.
  • Use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe off the product. Polish and buff for a glimmering finish.
Look at your stain-free car!
