Default help please

My husband decided to be Mr Nice Guy and wash and wax my car for me. Which was great and all, but sometimes he rushes through things. So here is where I need help. Everytime he does this try as he might, he ends up getting was on the gray bumpers. It won't come off any one know how to get it off? So I am riding around with white wax marks on the gray bumpers and it's beginning to irk me.

Since your fairly new here you have not heard of the miracle cure, peanut butter. Yes, many here have tried this method and it works. Just put a little peanut butter on a soft tooth brush and go to town. Let us know your results.

The gray part of the bumper is the color of the actual bumper material. If you have some other color on that part of the bumper, a little elbow grease and some mineral spirits should remove the white marks.

The peanut butter wax removal is true - I'm told vegetable oil also works, that it's the oil in the peanut butter that removes the wax.

Makes you wonder who was the first to try it.......

Did it work? We've had a death in the family and I haven't had time to try it out yet.
