Default way to clean headlights

if your headlights seem dimmer it may not be the bulb. it could be the cover... i learned that toothpaste will clean the covers to make it 10xs brighter! any type works. put on scrup and rinse off

A real gritty toothpaste is best and a buffer wheel and a cordless drill

It shouldn't, use a cordless drill and put it on low or medium of ya got the option, don't use a corded drill that's too much power

Works really good. After using the toothpaste try taking some windex to the lens to get all the toothpaste off. I have done this on a lot of vehicles after installing HIDs. Actually works pretty well haha

wait, before i do this to my one headlight to take the denseness off my cover, you are SURE this works?

----------

i have stock heads still, it WILL work though? Take the lens off, scrub toothpaste on the lens with a ..sponge? then after, wipe the lens down with windex? Ok. Thanks
