Headlight Restoration - D.I.Y.

Headlight Restoration - D.I.Y.

Do your headlights date your car?  They're dingy and dirty-looking and make your car look older than it is?  You wash them and they start to look new again, only to dry and go back to foggy?  Ours did! And we tried all the D.I.Y. remedies...to no avail.

  • Scrubbing with a toothbrush...Nada!
  • Washing the car...duh, we tried this, but...back to foggy!
  • Toothpaste as a cleaner...Ok, with search results and the help of Pinterest, we found some people use toothpaste. Weird, we know, but of course we tried! And sadly, STILL nothing! Maybe a bit cleaner, but that didn't help with the cloudy or fogginess.
