Additional Tips for Headlight Restoration

There are even more simple ways to get your headlights sparkling again. One option is using vinegar, baking soda, or a combination of both to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the headlight.

  • Choose either a toothbrush or a microfiber cloth to rub either the baking soda, vinegar, or a mixture of the two products onto the lens of each headlight.
  • Rinse and repeat as frequently as required to clear away the dirt and grime that has accumulated over time.
  • A coat of waxing compound can be applied when the surface of the headlight dries thoroughly. Simply buff the waxing compound in the same way that you would buff the vehicle.

Although the abrasiveness of the baking soda is ideal if you are looking to remove dirt, this method may not be the best choice for cleaning headlights that have been severely oxidized.
