^^X2 or WD-40.

WD-40 doesn't hurt your paint either...... Remember WD-40 Is a mechanics secret.

Something to think about for next time...use a wax that doesn't stain.

Also, if you scrub the trim with one of these waxes and a sponge or microfiber, in many cases it will actually remove the wax stains from other products.

The PB trick does work, however, its usually just the oils in the PB that cover up the wax, and not necessarily remove it.

May also consider trying a quick detailer or all purpose cleaner and microfiber towel. Always did the job for me.

I was told that you should dress your trim prior to waxing and polishing, that way it can wipe off easier.

Staedtler eraser. No joke, it's dirt cheap, it's disgusting how well it works.

I had this same problem for a long time....wax residue on my black trim. I used some Goo Gone citrus spray and it took it right off. I was amazed.

Turtle Wax Ice liquid polish removes wax residue off of trim. That's all I use anymore.

Really? Gotta try this out sometime. I wax mine every two weeks since its parked outside most of the time and waxing is a headache because of all that plastic!
