My beautiful black interior of my VW Jetta is something like leather (sort of synthetic I think). I use a sunscreen that has gotten on the steering wheel and other areas of the interior and a few places on the pretty silver exterior. It's the white residue from the sunblock filters zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. The manufacturer is Banana Boat. How can I remove these stains? Many thanks!! Laura Lee
