When polishing my car I get a bit on the mirror side moulding plastic border (the bit right next to the A pillar). It stains it white and I cant get it off. A mate told me to use armorall protectant and it did work but only while its renewing the plastic, after about a week the white stain comes back. Armorall only works if you keep applying it weekly but it only covers it, it doesnt remove it.

What will remove the polish from black plastic permantly?

Anything else?

Is that stuff extremely bad for paint? Like if I get a drop on it or the rag with it touches the paint.

Prepsol is designed not to remove or damage paint. You can feel safe, it is after all "Wax & Grease Remover"

Merguires Quik Detailer does it nice, in fact go over the whole car with it after a polish and it will look and smell a million dollars, I love the stuff.

This is probably a F**k stupid question, but are you supposed to polish plastic? Like colour coded bumpers?
