- Cleaning headlights at home is fairly simple
- Use a soft brush, or you might scratch your headlights
- Wipe clean your headlights once you are done washing
On the other hand, some well-informed car owners see that the headlights aren't performing optimally and the light is dim or not as bright as it used to be. They appear yellowish or dingy in most cases. Headlights were made from glass earlier, and they used to get a lot foggier.
Headlights are now made of highly durable plastic and have a different u-value. However, the plastic might degrade and crack due to frequent temperature changes or UV lights. You can get cloudy lights in such a case too.
Cleaning Cloudy Lights
Cleaning cloudy lights are fairly simple and don't require complex skills or knowledge. All you need is:
- Microfiber towel
- Toothpaste/cleaning product, or baking soda
The process only has five simple steps and saves you a lot of time and money.
Wipe your headlights thoroughly after spraying the cleaning agent. Before you get to cleaning the actual headlights, you should get rid of leaves, dead bugs, or dirt that might be stuck to your headlights.
Ensure that you dry the surface by wiping it clean. Use the microfiber towel to wipe and absorb all the liquids.
Use Cleaning Product
Apply the cleaning product/ toothpaste/ baking soda to your headlights. If you use baking soda, mix it with some water to make a paste. Let the solution dry for a few minutes before you wipe it clean.
Clean the car's headlights with the brush and ensure that you use a brush with soft bristles to avoid scratching your headlights. Once you start brushing, you will find that the yellowness is reducing.
Take Off the Cleanser
After removing the muddy and yellow layer from your headlight, thoroughly wipe and rinse with water. Use the microfiber towel to clean the headlight, and you will see a brand new-looking and polished headlight. It will look as good as a new headlight.
It is fairly easy to clean your headlights at home, and this DIY process wouldn't even take up a lot of your time. You don't need to go to the car wash and spend that hard-earned money anymore.
