suggestion to get rid of hard to remove wax residue from trim

Recently bought a car that has a ton of white residue that won't come off the trim with anything I have. I have done a search and have come across people recommending everything from a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to peanut oil.

Any ideas? I'm all for the Magic Eraser, but I don't think I'm going to try peanut oil. Do you think any damage can be caused from either of those solutions?

Thanks

Uhh I would not recommend peanut oil under any circumstance.

If you want a dedicated cleaner, try this:

There are a few other products on this site you can use also.

Depending on the trim, be careful with that magic eraser. It could do more harm than good in some area's.

I like Meguiar's products. #39 and #40 are both available through your local Autozone. Try #40 first. It's a vinyl and rubber cleaner and conditioner. Works awesome at cleaning, and also leaves some protection behind so your trim pieces don't dry out. If #40 can't cut the wax residue, use #39. It's a vinyl and rubber cleaner. Not incredibly strong stuff, but works very well at cleaning the trim pieces.
