Peanut butter will remove the wax residue (wipe on, let it sit, wipe off). You can also try using those white drafting erasers (available at most office supply stores), or some 3M General Adhesive Remover...

For treating it, Forever Black works well (but it's a dye, so be careful with it), or any high quality tire dressing. Most tire dressings will run when wet, so that's another thing to consider when detailing the trim.

Unfortunately, no one has made "the perfect" dressing trim as of yet.<br>
