Blurred and yellowed headlights not only look unaesthetic, but can also be dangerous. Because through muffled glass passes much less bright and less enlightens the road, which can create a serious situation in the traffic.
Fortunately, there is a very cheap and easy way to clean and refresh the car headlights. We share with you this useful, genius advice.
You will need: toothpaste with abrasive ingredients, toothbrush, water and wax
Apply a thin layer of toothpaste on the surface of the headlight. Then, use a toothbrush to clean the surface.
Wipe off the paste and cover with a thin layer of wax, for headlights to stay longer clean. Rub it good. Finished!
Does it work?
The Instructions are simple enough to follow. Start by applying a small amount of toothpaste on a rag, and rubbing in small circular motions, until done. After only a couple quick passes the results are already noticeable. As you can see by the image on the left, it worked on the Avenger, but not as well because of all the deep scratches and scarring it has.
Does it last?
A little tougher of a question. With the toothpaste, you may get 2-4 months out of it, unless you apply a wax, or something like Opti-coat, clear coat, or another sealant to your headlights to block the UV rays and keep them from getting hazy again. ( Here is one guy’s homemade sealant from urethane Try at your own risk)
What kind of toothpaste works?
Toothpaste is a mild abrasive, so it naturally works well to polish things, and fill small scratches. Just don’t use any kind of toothpaste with cooling crystals or anything like that, as they will scratch the surface badly. I used regular whitening toothpaste out of my medicine cabinet, and it worked just fine. If you are still unsure try in an inconspicuous spot first.
