Does anyone know of an easy way to get car wax off plastic? my plastic on the nox looks like someone bleached it. It's terrible.

They make trim parts gel that will hide it for a bit.

I'm thinking maybe soapy water and a toothbrush?

Yes, use all purpose cleaner (lots of foam) and a detailing brush to scrub it off, worked for me. I used Meguiar's gold class trim detailer to get back the shine on the plastic.

Buy a Heavy Duty Vinyl Cleaner and wipe it off with a towel.
