    Try Dawn soap and plastic bristle detail brush. I just had the same issue with some of my plastic.

    Any automotive surface cleaner should get that off but it doesnt hurt & evetnually will fade out anyways. Try that 303 cleaner stuff

    Believe it or not, a pink pencil eraser usually takes that off, although maybe not as well on textured trim. A little APC (I like Megs D101) and a (soft)toothbrush will usually do the trick. When all else fails, McKees makes a product specifically for this issue.

    Soapy water and a brush did the trick!
