Read a post on another forum about using peanutbutter to get rid of discolored, or faded portions on trim pieces. Basicly, somebody was complaining about having something on a textured trim piece that he couldn't remove with any products and another forum member said to use creamy peanut butter to get rid of it. Sure enough there were a few more posts from guys saying that they tried it and it worked like a charm. I'm trying to find the link again, cause I'm sure there will be a few people curious about it.

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but if anyone does (at your own risk of course:sneaky ), please let me know. The guys that were posting about it said that it made the pieces look brand new.

Started looking around for info, and found this on popularmechanics web site.

"Avoid getting wax or polish on rubber and flat black plastic areas (clean them with a nongloss product), door handles and emblems. If you do get a wax stain on rubber trim, spray it with a mist-and-wipe product and wipe it down with a terry cloth towel. If that doesn't do the trick, this usually works: Microwave some peanut butter and apply it to the stain with a soft toothbrush. Peanut butter's oils dissolve the wax and it's abrasive enough to lift the stain (but it can stick to the roof of your car). "

Make sure you use an equal helping of jelly to give it the proper consistency.
