Foggy and discolored headlights are not only aesthetically displeasing, but they can also be a safety hazard as well. Cloudy headlights limit your nighttime vision and make your vehicle less noticeable in night driving conditions in Cincinnati, OH. Most modern headlights can be restored, at least temporarily, with household products.

The cause of headlight fogging is UV exposure. Over time, UV rays from the sun cause chemicals to leach out of the plastic headlight lenses. Those chemicals then oxidize on the surface, causing a chalky, yellow film to form. Headlight restoration involves removing this film and re-sealing the surface. One of the simplest tools you can use to remove the yellowing is toothpaste. Regular toothpaste is a light abrasive; perfect for removing the film without imposing new scratches. Just use a damp cloth to massage the toothpaste into the lens in a circular motion. Rinse away the toothpaste and enjoy your freshly revived headlights.
