Cleaning Your Headlights with Toothpaste

Over time, your headlight covers are bound to get foggy. Not only is the light of the sun harsh on the plastic, but they’re also getting constantly blasted by tiny particles that will scratch up and dull the finish. There are expensive products available in stores that promise to rectify this problem for you, but you can probably achieve the same results with materials you already have around the house.

All you need for this job is a rag and a bit of toothpaste. Simply apply the toothpaste to the rag and rub it onto your headlight covers, moving in small, circular motions. After a few passes, you should be seeing noticeable improvement in the clarity of your headlights. Once you are satisfied, consider applying wax or a sealant to the surface to protect them from further damage.

If you have any damage that cannot be as easily wiped away, bring your vehicle down to our auto body shop in Seattle.
