    In Halfrauds at the weekend I spotted a little tool thing made by Flash (I think) - didn't pay much attention to it but it looked about the size of a pencil with a shaped rubber end to it which is designed to be used for just what you said.

    Kinda hard to explain ......

    I didn't notice the price but could only be a few quid I would think.

    Sometimes taping up the surrounding area helps, but not everyone's cup of tea. Residue should come out in the next wash? A;ways good to have one of the soft-bristled Megs slidelock detailing brushes handy. Invaluable.

    I'll have a look for one of them as this brush here is too harsh.
    not washing it again after polishing or taping the nooks and crannies am not got OCD

    Exactly what I was going to say; either a selection of soft bristled brushes and a wool duster, or else wait until the next wash and jet wash it all away.

    I always use a wool duster. But when I get lazy I always wait until the next wash. Less work for me.
