Removing wax residue from trim pieces

After waxing, the textured black trim will often retain some dried wax. This gives the trim a white, powdery appearance that is far from desireable. We discuss how to remove this residue.

Time Required:
15 - 30 minutes

Tools Needed:

  • Pink Pet eraser (just a normal pencil eraser)


    Simply rub the eraser over the areas where the wax residue is present. Only use the eraser on plastic trim. Don't rub it on painted surfaces, as it could leave rub marks. You can also try using products such as Mother's Back To Black, however, these often don't work to permanently remove the excess wax, they just mask it for a while.
