    The previous owners of my car waxed it regularly. Unfortunately, they never taped off the molding/weatherstripping and it is now stained. Is there anything I can use to take the stains out?

    Peanut butter works too. The oils will remove old wax residue.

    scrub with paint brush using ether actone, degreaser, 3m wax remover after cleaning its best to renew to bring back the oils in rubbers and plastic, when the oils are depleted rubber and plastic will crack.
    Meguiar's (never tried Poor Boys yet) makes a good trim restorer that makes rubber trim nice and black and last a long time too and it will remove wax off trim at the same time. after I put a trim restorer on I let it set for a while (my truck a day) and use 303 for uv protection.

    So clean and restore; any products at a local store (e.g. Autozone) that would do that?
