So i cleaned my car the other day and i noticed that there are spots on rear and side bumpers. Now this is the plastic section. The car wash i use does a great job but no matter how much i scrubbed these spots they did not come out. It looks like water was splashed on but it doesn't seem to be water. Does anybody know a solution to this problem.
I would appreciate it
thanks

Did you use spray-on tire shine? I find when I use spray-on tire shine on my tires it will splatter on the lower trim if I drive before it dries. It usually takes a few hours to dry completely. The solution is to thoroughly dry the tire with a towel or let it dry on its own before driving or to use a wipe on shine that's not as wet...

I use Armor-all on these areas to blend the spots in...

For stubborn stains on the bumper plastic I use simple green and a mild scrub brush (tooth brush for hard to reach areas.) Always finish up with lots of water.

When the bumper is good and try I finish up with trim shine.

They always look as good as new when I'm done.





You know it must be good, my Escape is on the can!

How long does the Trim Shine last? Until the next rain or car wash?

I use cheap Everyday Living Furniture polish from Kroger... orange scent.
It works just as good as some automotive products, including Stoner's Trim Shine liquid... and it's a lot cheaper at about $2/can.
Nothing seems to hold up against the rain.
