Does anyone know of any product that can take wax residue off of vinyl trim that's in the front back and sides of newer model mustangs?

Try heat. Ex hair dryer or heat gun.

Not sure if this works yet but I have it sitting on my shelf. I am going to do it on my Moms car and my neighbors car once it cools off just a little.

Wax Remover

Re: How to take wax residue off of vinyl trim

I have used some cleaner and an electric toothbrush(yea, I have one for the car). I don't remember the name but it is some kind of "purple" cleaner, don't get it on the paint though(reason for the toothbrush). I have found when you use the trim restorer stuff it will show back up later.
