Introduction: Clean Your Hazy Headlights With Toothpaste
Here's one trick that every car owner should know! Remember the day when you bought your car, everything was squeaky clean. 5 years later, you'll realize that your headlights are covered with cloudy dirt, cleaning it with soap isn't enough. The solution; toothpaste!
When we went out of town on a road trip, my dad noticed that the light coming from our headlights seem to be faint and diffused. When we finally got home, I noticed this cloudy haze on our headlights. Cleaning the car is one of my chores.
On the other day, I was asked by my dad to try to find and find way of cleaning the hazy headlights. I googled for solutions then I suddenly I came across jessyratfink's write-up, I gave it a try and it worked like Magic!
I'm kinda' starting my YouTube channel so I decided to make this video. BTW, thanks to everyone who supported my previous YouTube project, it turned out to be successful. There's more to come! :D
Step 1: Things You'll Need
All you need is a foil of toothpaste and a clean piece of cloth (microfiber works well).
Step 2: Squeeze Some Toothpaste!
Squeeze out enough toothpaste on your finger tip then wipe it on the cloth.
Step 3: Scrub & Buff
Don't add some water yet! using a cloth, scrub the tooth paste in an elliptical motion.
Step 4: Clean & Dampen Your Cloth
Go to your sink then dampen your cloth with water. Just water.
Step 5: Rinse Your Headlights
Go back to your car and scrub it again, this time with a damp piece of cloth.
Step 6: Wipe It!
When your done with the scrubbing, wipe it!
Step 7: Voila!
Your headlights will look brand new! Just like magic! :D
That's how toothpaste keeps out mouths clean! LOLs :))
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
How long will this stay clean looking? Will it fade back to the haze?
For me it did not last long. I used crest complete and cleaned the lenses well. They were very foggy and aged and just looked terrible in general, when I was done, they certainly didn’t look brand new by any means, but did look quite a bit better. However, it seems like only a few weeks had gone by and they were back to about what they had looked like before. I am now looking into replacing and upgrading headlight assembly which is beginning to look into the options. Many of the options available definitely expensive.
