Hoping you guys can help me here.

Over the last few weeks, mainly when it's been sunny ive noticed lots of fingerprint marks on the b pillar.

I know it will be makeup off the girlfriend or sister. I'll be having works with them for sure!

When I have washed it recently the marks have stayed there, does anyone know what I could get that would remove it?

Cheers

Try a cloth and a bit of methelated spirits. Works removing wax from plastic trim so should work on makeup too

Thanks, quick google seem to be able to get a bottle for a few quid.

So probably just a little bit on a cloth should get it off?

Try polishing them, there was a thread on detailing world where someone got suntan lotion on the back and you wouldn't believe the mess it makes.

Yeah I can imagine!

I'm proper watching them when they get in / out of the car now haha

I order a bottle of methylated spirits off eBay, but I'm sure I have some polish in the house too. Will try polish first then if that doesn't work ill use the other stuff.

Try smooth peanut butter.
The peanut oil polishes plastic a treat.

External, still alright to use the stuff then?
Like when they shut the door that's how the marks get there
