    So like a noob I got mcgwires plastic restore spray all over my paint by my door handles. I tried alcohol like the directions say and it doesn't do anything. it's like a wax almost. I'm thinking I may have to buff it off? any ideas?

    Try some acetone. Use gloves and a microfiber towel.

    Blot a little into the towel and quickly wipe it off.

    Then wipe it down with a spray wax to hold you over until you can wash and wax the vehicle.
