I consider myself a pretty objective guy who isn't easily fooled at age 55. So when I read about "peanut butter" I just had to laugh.
However, my Bushwacker rail caps, and OEM Mazda mud flaps, take to anything that will dry to a white haze and seemingly never let it go.
I tried IPA alcohol, Dawn dish washing detergent, then I went to Mineral Spirits and Toluene, then Xylene and finally 3M adhesive remover.
The result? The damn white haze remained! Unfreakin' believable! Same old crap since the 1970's.
So, this afternoon, I dug into the pantry and found some very old "crunchy" generic peanut butter.
What the hell! Why not!
I took my 13 year old German Shepherd (Mocha) and headed outside.
Here's the results:
After rubbing in the peanut butter:
Want proof that it's peanut butter? (I don't blame you) Check this out:
Yes, that's Mocha licking the mud flap!
And this is the terry cloth towel with the peanut butter on it (caution: this is for adult viewing audiences only):
Now for those damn Bushwacker Bed Rail Caps:
You'll note some remnant "damage" to the finish. That was from my efforts with Xylene, Toluene, Alcohol, Mineral Spirits, 3M Adhesive remover, etc. that permanently damaged the finish.
I am definitely keeping my peanut butter on hand for future "white stuff" showing up on my black trim.
It simply works; and your dog will love it too!
