Clean Your Headlights!





Introduction: Clean Your Headlights!

I saw some Instructables about cleaning headlights with baking soda. However, I never remembered while I was at home, so I decided to try something else at the shop. The hand cleaner I use works fantastic at getting just about anything out of your hands so I figured I would give it a try on my headlights. The cleaner has small particles in it that are slightly abrasive. However, I wasn't too worried about this since my headlights couldn't really get any worse.

Step 1: Apply and Scrub

Apply the hand cleaner to a paper towels or a shop rag and use a circular motion to scrub the headlight. You can let it stand for a little while if you want, or even apply a second round.

Step 2: Clean It Up!

You some glass cleaner and paper towels or shop rags to clean off the hand cleaner residue.

Step 3: Done!

Clean up your work area and drive safe!

    Toothpaste works great, actually.

    Zero Zone was being rude. It works well compared to the other, but it is by no means the most optimal way, since the grit in fast Orange is too coarse, but it'll do the job temporarily and in a pinch.

    Awesome :) , and this is how you make a fog effect on your headlights. The one on the left is the result of this process. Thank you

    Looks good. I can see the difference. Nice job
