    If you use a colour specific wax there won't be any white residue left

    fast glass or Megs trim detailer is good for removing polish, if I were you buy some 3M High Performance Masking Tape Blue to cover any black before polishing, time consuming I admit but make a hell of a difference to the finish

    If they are the textured black plastic that is common on some cars then use something like the back of a scouring pad or nail brush with any good plastic restorer to get in-between the pimples. Care is needed not to catch any paintwork with a scourer but it really works on pimpled trim/bumpers etc., if you use a cloth that cant get in-between the dimples they will dry grey within an hour or so as you've not removed the dirt/residue just wet it.

    Autoglym bumper care is great stuff

    It was the only thing I could find to keep the bumpers on my Mk2 Golf black for longer than 10 minutes
