DIY Headlight Restoration Tips


You may not notice your headlights getting dimmer if the majority of your night driving is done under street lights. Then you drive into a rural area, and it becomes obvious that something has changed. It must be your headlights!

Given enough time, headlights dim from scratches and yellowing and can become cloudy. For the greatest visibility, headlights should be perfectly clear, but how can you return yours to their former glory?

Here are a few home remedies you may want to try in your quest for clearer headlights.
  • Toothpaste: Using a wet cloth, polish headlight lenses with toothpaste for a few minutes. This will do no harm and may clear up the problem.
  • Insect Repellent: (A word of caution first; this could harm your car's paint.) saturate a rag with the product and then scrub the headlights with it.
  • DIY Headlight Cleaning Kits: These kits are available anywhere auto supplies are sold and take the guesswork out of restoring your headlights.
