Stupid question -- wax and glass molding

So, I feel really dumb asking, but the 05 is giving me grief with this, and
ive never had to deal with it before...

After waxing (mother's) my paint, some got on the plastic trim around the
glass.. it dries white, and is annoying as hell. I tried wiping, and i tried
water, it looks like it comes off, but shows up again... what gets this off?
dawn? somethin else?

It will eventually go away on it's own. I've gotten wax on exterior
plastic before and not worried about it. But dishwashing soap should get
it off.

Yep, Dawn liquid dish soap gets it off. Been there, done that ;).

Re: Stupid question -- wax and glass molding

No way that stuff is great! But it's an 05 no? Just get some Dawn dish soap
& get it off. No need to spend $5 for the Mothers Back to Black. (I think
mothers, no?)

Re: Stupid question -- wax and glass molding

Just get a little on a dish rag & wipe it off until it's all off. lol... not
hard to re-apply wax anyway if you happen to get a little on the wax.
