Wax on plastic handles...how to remove

I used NXT Generation Tech wax and while it is great on the body it has left a white looking mess on the black plastic door handles. How does one remove this white mess? Any of you detailer guys know any tips? A brush and Lysol helped a little, but it still remains.

Try some Turtlewax Ice... If that won't get it off, use "Back to Black".

X2. The stuff even turns the wheel well skirts back to black. Also works on my spray-in bedliner.

I scrubbed the areas I got wax on real good with a small brush and Mr. Clean spray and dishwashing detergent. I rinsed that off then tried Acetone rubbing with a rag. Most of it has come off and tomorrow before I wash the truck I will scrub the areas some more. Eventually I can use something like the back to black to get it looking as it should.

You can get it in the Flat black, which dries nice and even. I used the Gloss black on my 2000 as stuff doesnt stick to it as easy. Its the best thing to use to get that "New Black" back on your flares. I didnt even take my flares off the truck. I used a credit card to slide some paper under the rubber stip, masked it off so-so, and sprayed them.
I also did this on a buddies Honda Accord, and it worked really good on his bumper. I used the Flat Black on his, and it looked like new.

if you try the Turtle Wax Ice on it, it works pretty well, but using the Back to Black makes swirl/rub marks
