Not very easy on plastic handles, some of the back to black products will work

It is always advisable to mask/tape off black grained handles and mouldings when polishing paintwork.. Two things that work...sugar soap, for cleaning paintwork before repainting, careful as it will also lift the polish on the paintwork ..use a tooth brush, and wipe off.. or neat washing up liquid, again using a tooth brush, then use the trim cleaners

I used Autoglym bumper gel on mine, got rid of all polish marks and brings them up lovely and black again without dying your hands! :roll:

For those nooks and crannies ........... after I have polished my car ....... I use a brand new, never used, never wetted, car wash brush, to get to the places other beers cant reach ......... sorry I mean that a cloth cant reach ...... lol

Easy peasy !

I stopped using polish years ago, especially one's like Autoglym because they contain fillers, which leave white power in the creases, I now use 100% carnauba wax, which doesn't dry white
