I don't feel like running to the garage to see what it's called but I'll edit later about it.
Ok like i said, one thing worked. It's called "Automotive Wipe Away", it's a clear liquid in a clear bottle with a orange/black label. The shit is like $3 or something, and it makes your garage smell good as fuck for about a week. It's found at Wal-Mart in auto dept. in the detailing section. Like i said, worked great, and it's safe for your car paint too. (If you're stupid, like me, and use too much wax on car and specs/streaks of wax show up a week later) On the body, the wax was effortless to remove. Literally, a 3 yr old coulda wiped it off. The trim is a bit harder. But came off easily compared to all previosly mentioned tricks. I do recommend what someone else said and tape/block off any black pieces of trim before waxing.
TRUST ME, you will regret not doing so.

You don't want to clay your rubber/plastic trim-especially since most of our trim is textured. Clay your paint, clay your windows, but don't every clay plastic..especially clear plastic.

vinal and trim shine work good for me, also tire gel works too it's pretty much the same stuff

When I turn on my left turn signal that means you need to turn on your right one...

This is true. The solvents in the fresh wax will dissolve the old wax..but you have to be very thorough wiping it off.

I use "Back to Black" and it seems to work great for me. I dont know why it doesnt work for others but for me it works great.

Yea that might work good, until a year later when the wax comes off and takes the paint off, and now your stuck with a weathered ugly piece of plastic. Use PB, or a dish cleaner.

Back to Black and it's ilk are dyes. They require periodic re-applications.
