Removing Waxy Haze

For years I have tried to find something that would remove polish/wax such as NuFinish that has gotten on black plastic trim . Finally found it! ACF 50 corrosion prevent-er and lubricant. Put a little on a cotton cloth and rubbed the offending area and the haze is gone.

I have used ACF 50 for years around aircraft and home. Considered it MAGIC and still is as far as I am concerned.

Was going to try WD40, but was out, thus turned to ACF 50. There is cheaper stuff out there, but this is the best IMHO.

Let us know how long it lasts. I am not sure you REMOVED the discoloring. You may have covered it up, like WD-40, or Armorall might do... If it lasts a few months in the sun, you may have something.

Will do. I know the effects Armorall has and you can normally see the haze in the hot sun. So far it looks like it is gone.

Just over two weeks and no recurrence of the haze. When I used ACF 50 I applied it with a tooth brush and removed excess with a cloth.

Keeping an eye on it.

Thanks for the updated report. I'm not sure if it was FR or the the dealer but there's certainly some white haze on some black plastic pieces that are driving my OCD nutty.

From videos I have seen Mothers Back to Black does a nice job of making the plastic look better. It does not seem to get the old wax off that was inadvertently gotten on black plastic trim. I have tried several products to clean it off without success. I think the ACF 50 is doing the trick.

I am definitely open to any product that removes the wax overflow.

Or could just avoid the overflow completely... Saw a video on youtube maybe where they masked off the plastic with tape... Seems a bit much for me! LOL
