Product Description

Mothers Back-to-Black Trim Care - 8 ounce helps to stop and reverse oxidation. As your ride's exterior ages, rubber, plastic and vinyl of all colors will dry, crack, flake and deteriorate. With Mothers back-to-black trim care, this oxidation process can be reversed. This trim treatment is great for bumpers, moldings, louvers, window trim, vents, seals, skirts, door handles, wiper arms - anything that's uncoated plastic, rubber or vinyl. The back-to-black to sunburnt plastic, rubber and vinyl can be applied to revive the factory-new sheen, and then re-treat regularly.

Also it seems like the more you use it, the better it looks and the longer it stays black.

I concur with the writer from 2008 and wish I had read his review prior to purchasing this product.

I have read all the reviews for Mother's Back To Black, and frankly, I am a little surprised that no one has mentioned the "rain factor" with this product. I used to use this on my Volvo bumpers because over the years, they had faded from black to grey. The Back to Black did make the bumpers look nice; however, as soon as the next rainfall, the stuff would run off the bumpers and cause really ugly streaks. Likewise, every time I washed the car, applications of the Back to Black became an additional step during the washing process. Well, I got tired of that really fast.

For those who use this product and love having to continually apply and re-apply it over and over again, enjoy! However, for those who are looking for a permanent remedy to your faded trim, use Forever Black. It is also available here on Amazon. I applied 6 coats of the stuff back in September of last year (2007). As of right now, the bumpers on my car look BETTER than they did on the day I bought the car (3 years ago). The bumpers look fantastic and the Forever Black is not affected by rain, or any other weather conditions. Actually, I am quite shocked that Forever Black is not better known that it is.

I have used Back to Black for years under a variety of conditions. During that period I have learned many things through trial and error as others have expressed in their reviews.

The high viscosity was never a problem for me. In fact, I find that low viscosity products, such as paste wax, are much more difficult to work with because they collect in difficult in tight spaces where they are difficult to remove. For best results you must pour the liquid on the vehicle in level, broad areas and you must pour a lot of it on a rag when applying it to other areas.

As the liquid is applied it should be rubbed in and then allowed to penetrate the surface for several minutes. If you don't remove the excess, there will be streaks after the next rain. Worse yet, the product will redistribute itself on windows if applied to trim and not wiped off.

How long the black finish lasts depends on a few factors, such as rain and washing frequency. Overall, the black shine will not remain for a long time. If you don't re-apply it every couple months, you will be sorry. For vehicles that are kept outdoors, instead of in sheltered parking or in a garage, the black shine will not last very long at all. A few days of rain will remove it. The bottom line is that Back to Black is a car care product that must be re-applied regularly. It is not a once-a-year solution.

I've tried every blackening product out there, Black-Magic, Armor All, Meguiar's, and even my own concoction and none work as well as this. Not only that, it lasts about 3-4 weeks outside in the weather, which I find amazing.

Also it seems like the more you use it, the better it looks and the longer it stays black. Plus it has a pleasant smell, which is always nice.

The only complaint I have is that it is a bit runny, which can make applying it a bit hard, but it's still worth every cent.

A must have for anyone with black trim/molding!

The instructions are very simple. You must liberally apply it massaging it thoroughly into the surface. Allow it to dry and then thoroughly buff with a clean cloth. I actually used a no scratch scour pad to put it on my abs plastic louver being it was a mildly rough surface. Allowed it to dry, then buffed it with a regular cloth and then followed with a microfiber cloth. 4 days later it rained and the product did NOT come off. The rain beaded up on the louver. So, properly applied rain will not wash it off. When applied it is shiny so it looks like a job done but you must proceed with the buffing process or it will probably wash off or streak and drip at the first rain. Properly applied this does not happen. For larger areas like a louver or a roof it is a chore but if you do it right the first time it is well worth it.

I purchased this product to shine up the gray and black trim on my 2003 Vibe with 110,XXX miles. On the black trim, both glossy and flat - wow! Excellent product. Removes oxidation, and gives it a single color, just great. However, on the gray it was a most horrible product. Now, you are saying: "Wait! This is Back-to-Black, why did you use it on non-black trim?" Well I used it on the gray because both labels said I could with the same effects as the black, no matter the trim color. However, on the gray it was runny and splotchy. For this they recommend that I buff harder, I did every level of buffing until my power buffer came out. I used my 6" power buffer to no avail; still splotchy and runny. I tried again on a later date and had the same results. In short, the product though marketed for use on all trim is in fact only useful for black trim, or at least my experience proves this.

For years, I've used another company's trim detailer. But when that ran out, the only one I could find at the local auto store was Mother's Back to Black. I use trim detailer on all sorts of trim types and vehicles, from cars to motorcycles, black plastic to flat grey painted metal, porous and non-porous.

For rubber materials, Back to Black works. It doesnt have that silicone slipperyness when you're done applying it. However, I noticed that this product will not cover up rubber surfaces that have accidentally been touched by wax. The wax marks show through after a couple hours of drying.

For flat finish painted surfaces, this product doesnt work at all. Blotchy and inconsistent. I'm sure this depends upon the condition of the surface you're treating, but the point of this product is to hide blemishes on surfaces that dont look so good anymore. As such, it doesnt work well for older vehicles that haven't been properly cared for.

Plastic surfaces seem to work 'OK', but the product washes off some plastics and on other plastics it doesnt seem to work at all (you can apply it, buff it, and it looks like it was never applied).

For ALL cases, the product doesn't last. If you have a newer vehicle (<2 yrs) the condition of the surface is probably so good that this product's shortcomings are not visible. But if you have a 5+ year old vehicle (or one that sees a lot of sunlight), then you'll be disappointed that all the time you spent detailing the rubber/plastic surfaces of your exterior is wasted.

To be fair, I'm comparing the performance of this Mother's product to the previous product I used which was made by the other 'M' company and is called "Trim Detailer" or "Gold Class Trim Detailer". The other company's product works much better and lasts far longer than Back to Black.
