Polish on Trim

Hi All,

Does anyone know what I could use to remove polish from the plastic trim?

I applied polish to my MiTo a few weeks back and it appears that I have got some on the plastic strips on the roof as well as on some of the other plastic on the car.

I have tried to clean it off with shampoo and water to no avail.

Thanks

Window cleaner might shift it, if the plastic strips are plasticky rather than rubbery.

You can try some tyre shine stuff (or shoe polish) if the plastic strips are rubbery rather than plasticky.

Cheers Ralf, I finally got round to sorting this out today and found that the tyre shine / dressing in a cloth removed all traces of the polish from all the plastic trim (aerial base, roof trims [where roof bars would go], rear wiper)

Good stuff!
