Protip: Removing wax buildup from trim.

Hi folks,

I have spent big bucks trying to find a product that will effectively remove old wax from plastic trim. Finally, I gave up and asked a local auto detailer what the trick was and he gave me a trade secret:

YouTube - How to remove wax from car bumpers and trim.

I filmed this on my new FlipHD - it sounds weird and tinny so I sound like a cartoon character, but the picture quality is pretty good.

I'm English, but twelve years in Texas means I picked up the vowel sounds so now most people think I sound Australian...

I don't mind

Austrylian? Ah don't fink so, mate. Unless your name is Bruce. Do you mind if we call you Bruce? (with apologies to Monty Python)
