    There is a trade product available for doing just that, it works well and there is no return,of polish residue once applied, it go's under various names and is generaly available at motor trade paint/valeting suppliers such as brown brothers or similar

    I use Autoglym Bumper Care .... gets rid of all the white streaks of polish and brings bumpers/trim up luvly and black. Recommended (and I have no association with the company ..... other than spending lots cash with them!

    well believe it or not I heard peanut butter was really good at this. I had terrible problems with mine and tried all the above but it allways came back after a few weeks.

    opted to really mess it up by spraying it white.

    Hi I have not tried it on polish, but Jane got some tar on her shoe on the beach, and I said try WD40 and it did the job, I know on the tin it can be used for a lot of things so I would say Dawn is right. Good Luck Bob.:thumb:
