My headlights had become so clouded, the light could barely shine through.

I had read about using toothpaste to clear the headlights and thought I would give it a try.

I went to the Dollar Store and bought a tube of Pepsodent, and checked to make sure it was a white paste.

I didn’t want gel or some odd speckled stuff.

Soft Rag

Paper Towels


How to Clean Your Headlights.

1. Squirt some toothpaste onto the headlight.

Using a clean rag, scrub the toothpaste over the headlight, concentrating on the worst areas. Really rub it on.


2. Spray the headlight with water, or use a wet paper towel to remove the toothpaste.

3. Wipe dry.

4. Repeat if the headlight is really bad.  I did mine twice.

And here’s the result.

If the cloudiness has been there for years, the toothpaste may not work as well.
