If you are using "system" products like Adams....try their detail spray...that is what helps remove excess wax on wiping down (for painted bumpers)....and VRT for the vinyl bumpers.
-Besides, if the bumpers are dark black vinyl...you probably shouldn't be waxing them anyway.

Get some vegetable oil and an old toothbrush. A lot of people recommend peanut butter, but it's really the oils in it that do the trick and a plain vegetable oil is just easier to work with.

Now, if you're talking about the whitish tape marks left behind on the factory plastic bumpers, that's another story altogether.

Thanks SR-PT4 i'll try the oil. The front bumper was repainted due to a lil fender bender. And i'm planing on replaceing the rear bumper with a roll pan soon. Thanks for all your help
