Peanut oil for....

frying fish or turkeys or even as a fuel.....but never again for detailing!!

andmoon was right, it makes a sticky, gooey, hard to remove mess...just spent an hour de-greasing this stuff off the paint around the trim strips. I thought I had carefully removed the excess oil, but it got hot and the oil oozed out under the trim onto the paint and got hard and nasty.

It did work good making rubber black again...then the paint looks bad. Not a good trade. I am usually right at least twice a day....this was not one of those times.

I found a good way to remove the stuff

I did my bumper rubbers and trim with peanut oil also last fall. Plus, I spill a little when I syphon that clean cold WVO into the fuel tank. Anyway, when it dries up, it gets hard and looks awful, and sticks on really good. Well I found that spraying on a little of Westlys "Sure Wonder White Wall Tire Cleaner" loosens it up in an instant, spray it with a little water and wipe it up. It's gone! Sure wonder white is sold in spray bottles and in bulk bottles at AutoZone and WallMart.
