For awhile now I have been very frustrated with the look of my car's headlights. Not to mention the fact that it makes it very difficult to see at night. They were completely yellow and fogged over. I was about at the point where I thought I needed new ones.
I can't take all the credit or in fact any of the credit on finding this incredible trick. My good friend Carol posted on Facebook about this neat trick and as soon as I read it, I went running to the garage to give it a try. I figured that it couldn't make them any worse and I had everything on hand.
Clean rag or two
Toothpaste (the original post recommended Colgate but I used what I had on hand)
Not pictured - bowl of water
Step 1: Apply some of the toothpaste on the dry cloth
Step 2: Rub the toothpaste on the headlight in a circular motion until the grime starts to come off. This takes a bit of elbow grease and may take a few applications.
Step 3: After it appears that the grime has come off, use the cloth (or another clean one) to rinse the headlight clean. If it seems that it is still a bit hazy, do another application with the toothpaste and rinse again.
Step 4: When it is completely clean, buff it dry. Admire your nice shiny headlight!
Other than adding text, I didn't retouch my photos at all. I was completely shocked at the difference between the before and after. And I can't wait to test out my night driving!
I'm linking up to these parties.
