Didn't work for me
January 25, 2015
I used this product in an attempt to remove dried polish/wax residue from smooth rubber trim around windows and on textured plastic inserts on the bumpers of my E36 BMW.
Completely disappointed. After working for over an hour, and scrubbing with every kind of cloth, sponge, and brush I could think of, I gave up. The product is completely liquid, so soaking a vertical area isn't possible - it would just drip off. Even soaking a horizontal surface is difficult because the product beads up and is repelled by the wax/polish; it doesn't penetrate the stain.
I was able to get some of the wax residue off the rubber trim. But in the process, the area I was working on got dried out / cloudy / streaky.
There was zero improvement to the textured plastic on the bumpers.
The "age" of the residue doesn't seem to make a difference. Before writing this review I tested residue from a same-day wax job, and residue over a year old. Minimal improvement either way.
This product fell far short of expectations - in terms of ease of use, time needed, and quality of results. I followed the directions, and this is NOT the quick and easy solution it claims to be. I suspect it is just alcohol in a fancy bottle based on color, smell, consistency, and rate of evaporation.
Pros:Nice sturdy bottle
Cons:No brush, sponge, or applicator or any type included
Runny liquid makes it difficult to saturate a vertical surface
Runny liquid drips if you try to apply with it with a toothbrush (or similar)
